When I Was Your Age


Yes, I know any past “golden age” had problems of its own, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look back and say some things were better—Sunday School music, for example. I don’t know what is being taught in your church—or mine, for that matter, not having had small children in Sunday School for several years—but the little I hear, as the sage says, “ain’t like it used to be.” Here is an example of what wise teachers of the past taught to sweet, adorable children like me.

That’s how I learned it. Here’s another version.

It should be acknowledged that I also learned some lame, stupid stuff like this:

Which reminds me of Ralph Hudson’s inexplicable late addition to Isaac Watts’ hymn, “Alas, and Did My Savior Bleed“ (”At the Cross”):

At the cross, at the cross,
Where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away.
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!*

So we see, stupid is not new. I just hope someone is still teaching the kids something worth singing.

* See why I don’t like this chorus, and the children’s song above, here.
