pcnd5584 Posted June 30, 2011 Share Posted June 30, 2011 There was a new hymnbook launched in New Zealand last year that goes under the name Hope is our song. Found amongst the pages can be found such favourites as the new Hymn 'Jumping Jesus'. The third and final verse of which is: Jumping Jesus, Jumping Jesus, puts the bounce into my life, takes my hand and whispers softly, 'love's the thing, not war and strife'. We will leap together so: jumping, jumping, here I go! Learning how he does that trick, bouncing on his Pogo stick; off he goes - I'd best be quick - Jumping Jesus. There are other examples of a similar standard of work, however every time I try to type them in here, I find myself lying in the corner in a foetal position, whimpering to myself. CTT Oh. my. God. I once saw, in some songbook or other, a ditty with one verse which ran: Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Other verses were similarly creative. At the footer, was the legend 'Words copyright....' Here at the Minster, we have one particularly odd-looking altar-frontal. It consists of an embroidered backcloth, in the centre of which is stitched an irregular and spiky sliver shape. Apparently if one says 'Jesus' into an oscilloscope, this is the graphic representaion which ensues. I have never been informed as to precisely how one should enunciate 'Jesus', in order to arrive at this precise result. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
