Songs in 666

I was paging through a book of hymns while sitting in the back of the Church of the Immaculate Conception on Easter Sunday. I've been to a handful of churches of different denominations and seen similar hymn books. They have page numbers, but most hymns don't last a full page and each song is assigned its own number. I skipped to hymn 666 wondering if it would be there or they'd skip right from 665 to 667, but it was there. I can't remember the name of it, but whoever wrote it must have been pissed. I can't image they'd ever put that song up on the magnetic board at the front of the church, but it's not like they could pretend the number didn't exist -- that would mean they'd ceded the battle over 666 to the devil, Glenn Danzig and All Hail the Black Market.
