First, I must begin by saying that this blog posting is only meant to amuse (not malign) the well-meaning and oftentimes harassed Worship Leaders in churches across North America. With trying to find the right balance of Contemporary and Traditional hymns every Sunday to keep all congregants happy, it’s a wonder Worship Leaders are not pulling out what little hair they may have on their heads already. That said, one of the main distractions for me in Worship is spotting typos in the Worship PowerPoint. As an English teacher and writer it’s hard to shut the editing mode off on Sundays when I spend a great deal of time during the week correcting punctuation and grammatical errors in class and on Facebook.
Jon Acuff, wrote a great post on his Top 16 Worship Music Typos: “Lord, You are more precious than silver… Lord, You are more costly than golf.” I am still laughing at that one!
I could add a few more to the fray: (I found these on the web.)
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved; How precious did that grace appear the hour I first relieved.”
“Angels we have heard get high.”
“Go tell it on the montain.” (Wikipedia Note: Montain is a commune in the Jura department in Franche-Comté in eastern France.)
“I was lost in udder darkness ’till You came and rescued me.”
“My God is mighty to sve. He is mighty to save.”
“Shout to the Lord! All the earth let us sig” or “Shout to the Lord! All the earth let us sin!”
Grammatical Errors: “Your the God of this city. Your the King of these people.”
“You are beautiful beyond description / To marvelous for words”
“How grate is are God”
Copy and paste fail: “The earth is filled with his lory, The earth is filled with his lory, Holy is the Lord”
The best one yet: “All hail the power of Jesus’ name, let angels prostate fall.”
