Since two of the books (Esther and Song of Solomon) in the canon of Scripture that God inspired do not mention the name of God, then I don't think that Christians can or should adopt a hard-and-fast rule in that regard about the content of hymns, or assume that, because a hymn of praise or worship does not specifically contain God's name, it should not be sung out of concern for God's disapproval of it, or for not providing a proper witness. To me, it would depend on a case-by-case consideration of the message that the song was written to convey, and whether that message is consistent with the teachings of the Bible.
