Whew! Thank God we are adults now and we can pretend we never sang rubbish to rhyme with the songs we did not know. Anyway, here is a small reminder of those times when we were cursing ourselves thinking we were singing fire hymns.
1. “Rock of ages, cleft for me.”
All of us as children: “Rock of ages, swear for me, let me hang myself indeed.”
Let’s just thank God that such requests were not granted. Otherwise…
2. “Now the day is over, night is drawing near…”
A lot of us knew it from the beginning, but towards the part of “shadows of the evening, steal across the sky” everything goes skrrr. Are you sure you can sing it well? Oya start. We’re waiting.
3. “Some have food but cannot eat…”
No lies, this was what we all sang: Sommar food but cano eat, sommar food but canno eat, we her food an we can yit, glory be to d o Lor, amen.
4. “Stand up, stand up for Jesus…”
Half the time, na all of us chop mouth for this song.
5. “The most excellent king is Jesus…”
You don’t know this song? That’s because you know it as “The most excellency is Jesus, shout halleluyah amen.” Shey you see how you’ve been singing it wrong? Yes, it’s not a hymn, but there was a time when some of us sang it as Semo’s excellency is Jesus.
Let’s just thank God for mercy.
