My mom always used to think that the lyrics to "Silent Night" were: "Sleep in heavenly peas", so she thought that baby Jesus's bed was filled with peas.
again, as a child i used to sing a gospel hymn called "joshua fought the battle of Jerichoe and the walls came tumbling down"
until i was about 6 i would belt out in church "Joshua bit the bottle of cherry-coke and the walls came tumbling down"
My Father had an interesting take on the carol 'we three kings'
'we three kings of trafalgar square
selling knickers at tuppence a pair
they're fantastic, no elastic
falling down everywhere...'
I used to think that church songs were pop music. Well, we did sing them in church every week...
I could never get over why everyone would sing such a gentle, sweet church hymn about a bomb. The song lyrics sounded like "There is a bomb in Gilead, to make the wounded body whole... to heal the sin-sick soul." I thought, what kind of a bomb could that be? Only one God could make I suppose. Finally the day of revelation came... "There is a balm in Gilead"
Real words in "Jesus Loves Me": Little Ones to Him Belong..."
Until I was 15 I thought it was: "Little wants to hear me long"
When I was younger, my parents had me attend Sunday school. We always had to sing songs and this one song was "Praise thee the Lord, Hallelujah!" and I thought it was "Crazy the Lord, Hallelujah!" I'm almost 21 now and I didn't realize this until a few years ago. I just can't stop thinking about me belting that out during Sunday school.
I was telling my boyfriend about the hymn "Victory in Jesus" and when I got to the part that went "He sought me/and bought me" my boyfriend thought I said "He socked me/and bopped me."
'"I am the Lord of the Dance," said he.'
I believed that this was actually 'I am the Lord of the Damp Settee', and every time it rained, I would drag our sofa outside, so that I could ask Jesus for toys...
When I was about 9, Michael Flatley (the Riverdance guy) released the show "Lord of the Dance" and I remember hearing about it. At around the same point in my life, we used to sing the hymn "The Lord of the Dance" at school masses.
So, obviously whenever we sang "dance then, wherever you may be, I am the Lord of the Dance, said he" I used to think that Jesus liked Riverdancing and wanted everyone to Riverdance with him.
"Mark and Gerald's angels sing
Glory to the new born King..."
Who art in Heaven
Harold be thy name..."
my auntie used to believe that the song that goes "i am the Lord of the dance said he" was "I am the Lord of the Dump Settee!
There was a hymn we sang at school which had the line "i am the lord of the dance, said he".
I used to dance around my house and jump on the sofa (the settee), and thought the words of the song were "I am the lord of the dance settee", and had a mental image of jesus jumping up and down on the sofa with me!
When I was younger, I didn't understand the words to many of the hymns we sang in church, but there was one that just couldn't be mistaken. When this particular hymn was sung, I would stand, and proudly, whole-heartedly, and in my best, loudest voice sing...."Bringing in the sheep, bringing in the sheep; we will come rejoicing, bringing in the sheeeeeeep."
I used to think that the last line of the song 'Lord of the Dance' was 'Dance then, wherever you may be, I am the Lord of the Dance settee' and for years afterwards I had this image of Jesus danicng on a settee!
when i was little, around the age of 5 i used to believe God's frist name was Andy, becuse of the song "In the Garden" i heard "Andy walks with me, Andy talks with me ..." insdead of "And He walks with me, And He talks with me..."
I couldn't understand why people would call themselves "Wrenches"
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wrench like me...

I used to believe when I was 6 or 7 that the song "Our God Reigns" was "I've got brains..."
There was also another song about heaven that ended "..where we'll be to part no more." I thought it was "...where we'll be Chicago more." I thought it would be neat to visit Chicago since I had never been.
I was one of those children who knew most of the hymns actual words by the time I was 5 or 6. Yet, there was one that always confused me..."here are mice and me, Lord..."(actual words: here am I, send me Lord...)
