“Every PEAR a powerful weapon” and other misheard lyrics

We found this fun article in The Telegraph this weekend and it got us thinking about misheard and mis-sung lyrics in worship songs.

Click through to the Facebook thread to read some great alternative takes on what the original song writer intended including:

“I am the Lord of the dance settee”
“Oh happy day, happy day – You washed my skin away”
“My hope to follow Julie is in Thy strength alone”
