Jack Of All Hymns

Most people know all the words to a few select hymns. But I know the first line of many different hymns.

In a lot of cases just knowing the title is knowing the first line to many hymns. Wait, is that the joke?

Since the hymns are supposed to be prayers, do you cut off all of your prayers after the first line?

Awe snap!

Tee hee.

Also in the spirit of full disclosure, I should say that I do in fact know more than just the first line. I also often know the word that rhymes with the first line. Like:

"How firm a foundation ye saints of the Lord.

Hmmm hmmmmmm hmmm hmm hmm hmm hmmmm hmmm hm hmmm WORD!"

I can attest to that. It's shameful...after 29 years of sitting in Church!

I think hymns come and go like the enchanted city of Brigadoon_It appears once every hundred years for a day and then vanishes into myst (Kinda like rooms in the HFAC on BYU Campus)

If you become a follower of this blog, how long do you have to wait before posting?

Is there a waiting period like with handguns?

Its my first day, I didn't know.

Are we also to keep it to one post only? whoops

I read the comment at the following link and immediately thought of this blog and you. I hope you enjoy it - and aren't consumed by jealousy.

Question of the day: are you on twitter?

Gatsby said...

That's a good one, Pappa D. Thanks.

And Jantzie, I am not on Twitter. Should I be?

Rusty! said...

If you have a Facebook, Gat, you don't need a Twitter. Twitter is just a status update. But then again it's an easy way for people to follow you without giving them all your info like on Facebook.

jantzie said...

Yes, I believe you would flourish on the twitter with your funnies.

And sure, you don't really need a twitter, just like you didn't need a blogspot or a geocities or a hole in the head. But why not?

Twitter is better for those with ADHD.

Gatsby said...

Alright. I am on Twitter. Thanks for the peer presure Jantzie.

I am on Facebook, but I am just not that into it. Twitter seems a bit better for my needs - and it's not blocked at my work.

Oh and I am following you Jantzie.

Also I am following your Twitter page

Are you sure these are hymns and not Primary songs?
