May 25th: At the Name of Jesus.

This song is being included today for one sole reason. There is a part in the tune of this song - well, as it is played here - that makes you want to voice the "bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum" between each verse, well it makes me want to anyway. And obviously someone else in our church too - someone whose mouth was too close to a microphone at that point in the morning service today - I think you can guess the rest, but it was funny. A small amount of research on this song revealed a couple of other vaguely amusing bits connected with it. Firstly it was written by Caroline Maria Noel, who seems to have included it in her wonderfully titled: The Name of Jesus and Other Verses for the Sick and Lonely (Later editions were titled The Name of Jesus and Other Poems.) Also, a congregation singing it fairly badly. Well, must go before the date on this doesn't match the date on top of the page, 'cos that would be wrong. bye.
