Oh come all ye faithful . . . in bed

D: Have you ever played that game with the Protestant Hymnbook?
D: Yes. You open it to a random page, and read off the title of the hymn, but like with a fortune cookie, you add " bed" at the end.
Me: *delighted*
Me: *tries*
Me: Ohhh. HEE.
D: I know. Go on.
Me: *reads* 'I Need Thee Every Hour...'
D: Go on.
Me: ..In Bed.
Us: *snicker*
Me: *flips pages*
Me: *reads* 'Hold Fast Till I Come...'

And so we sat and read various things like 'He Will Hold Me Fast...In Bed', 'Lord and Master of Us All...In Bed', 'When He Cometh...In Bed', 'Trust and Obey...In Bed', 'Come and Dine...In Bed' and giggled our heads off until

Me: *reads* 'Christ, You Are My Fullness'
Me: ...
Me: *closes book*

"Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing," "A mighty fortress is our God," "Oh my Jesus, what angush," and of course, my favorite, "Sheep may safely graze"......which means it might be time to change your sheets.

I don't know. That last one, to me, sounds more like it's time to trim your bush (and hope it isn't burning).

If I would have only known about this in middle school...

Blest Be The Tie That Binds... in bed!

and I'm not going near 'Savior, Sprinkle Many Nations'

The credit's in the user info if you want to steal it :)

Guide Me Oh Though Great bed
How Great Thou bed

Hell, even Our God Is An Awesome bed

Why do I get the feeling that Crowley from Good Omens would love this game?

Because it is amazing like Crowley?

I must do this next time I'm forced to sit in church. It'll make services that much more fun.

But can you do it without laughing during the sermon? I'm not sure I could manage...

"I'm Gonna Live So God Can Use Me," "Breathe on Me, Breath of God," "Lord Jesus, Think On Me," "We Come As Guests Invited," "All Creatures of Our God and King," "Bread of Heaven, On Thee We Feed," "Let Us Talents and Tongues Employ," "We Gather Together."

And, of course, "Jesus Loves Me."

"Let Us Talents and Tongues Employ"!!!! BWAHHH!

"Alas, and Did My Savior Bleed."

I'm going straight to hell.

Only because you made Jesus a chick... ;-)

*is dying of laughter* No one's mentioned "O Come, All Ye Faithful" yet? Or is that one too easy?

It's a good thing I didn't learn about this game until a few years ago, well after I stopped attending church, because I don't think I'm ever going to be able to look at a hymnal the same way ever again.

Come Unto Me

Oh, How I Love Jesus

How Great Thou Art

Nearer My God to Thee

Be Still And Know That I Am God

Rock of Ages


OH MY GOD. This is my new favorite game.

A large chunk of my Catholicism was crushed when, in high school, my choir sang a song about baby Jesus called, "I Shall Know Him (When He Comes)". Included lines like "Come Lord Jesus, tarry not, find in me a resting spot," and a list of articles of clothing Jesus was not wearing.

I mean, Catholics have a sense of humour about these things, but I'm still going to hell.

Hooo - wow. Baby Jesus? I'm not going to touch that with a barge pole.

This will make my visits home much better!

I just found religion.
On the downside, I will never, ever be able to enter a church without terminal giggles.
This may make marriage difficult.

I didn't think this game could get better than when my friends and I used it to make both Attack of the Clones and Twilight much, much more entertaining. Apparently, I was wrong. XD You win for this.

This game works for the Ten Commandments too.

"Thou shalt not commit bed."

So the kitchen floor's all right, then?

"O Master, It Is Good To Be"
"Tis Good, Lord, To Be Here"
"O Let The Heart Beat High With Bliss"
"Jesus, The Very Thought Is Sweet"
"Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending"
"Hark The Glad Sound! The Saviour Comes"
"A Great And Mighty Wonder"
"Sing, My Tongue, The Glorious Battle"
"Lord, When Thy Kingdom Comes, Remember Me"
"Love's Redeeming Work Is Done"

I think this one is my favourite:

"O Lord, Turn Not Thy Face From Me"


"Jesus, The Very Thought Is Sweet"

That one's lolworthy on its own. Sounds more like a line from porny fanfiction. XD

your icon is mesmerizing. I stared at it for a minute before remembering that my intention was to click to link.

"Be Thou My Vision" - The mental image for this one may in fact be sending me to hell JUST FOR THINKING ABOUT IT.
"O Blessed Is the Lord My God"

Oh my God... I thought I already knew I shouldn't be drinking anything while reading this community. Ow, hot tea.

Everything's better in bed!

It's a good thing I don't go to church anymore, because otherwise I'd never make it through.

*tries to remember hymns from school*

Abide with bed.

He who would valient bed.

Shine, Jesus, bed.

Be Thou my bed.

I need to tell my sister about this. She goes to my old school and probably has the same hymn book.

He who would valient bed.

HAHA! That's amazing! We sung that hymn so much at my primary school it was insane... It was literally every morning "lets all stand to sing he who would valiant be"- not good... =P
