O for a thousand tons to sink.

July 20, 2007

I tend to like hymns, well some hymns.  One was “O for a thousand tongues to sing”.  I remember being really moved by the melody as a young kid.  Moved by the melody, but oh so confused by the lyrics.  You see, I thought it was actually “O for a thousand tons to sink”.  I was so confused as to why we were singing about what I, as a young kid, assumed was the sinking of the titanic.  It was a revelation when I finally read the lyrics, it was kind of like when I discovered there was an R in February and a D in Wednesday, mind boggling.
