Alternative Worship

Yesterday  had I the worship song "Be Unto Your Name" stuck in my head.  The first verse is:

We are a moment, You are forever
Lord of the ages, God before time.
We are a vapor, You are eternal
Love everlasting, reigning on high...

As I was going around the house singing it must have gotten stuck in Toby's head, too because later I heard his version:

We are a moment, You are forever
Lord of the ages, Land before time.
We have Lord Vader, You are a turtle.
Love everlasting, Land before time...

Oh, my tummy hurt from laughing!  And now I'll never be able to hear the song without Toby's lyrics.
Here's the original song in case you want to sing along.


  1. Oh, I love that song. And his interpretation is perfect. Kids' interpretations usually are perfect.

    Katie used to sing,
    "And step by step in the evening...
    I will follow you the next twelve months!"

    Just last night I heard that she has altered her translation to,
    "And step by step, believe me...
    I will follow you aunama days!"

    Couldn't bring myself to correct her then, and certainly not now!

  2. HAAHAHAA! That is too funny... I just love that! I love how you capture and share those funny thing, too!
