.... I still managed to choose a hymn without checking if we all knew the tune. Doh!
Or to be precise. The Church Hymnary Fourth edition sets the words of 'The Voice of God goes out...' to a different tune than Songs of God's People did.
Did I check this? Mais non. Zut alors! Just stood there like a lemon, thinking, 'This ain't Woodlands.'
Note to self - check, ask, check again....
Observation. People commented on singing new hymns with tunes we don't know. But it is a familiar hymn. Sung often. Set to an unfamiliar tune. Do we remember tunes better than lyrics?
