When I walked into the tech booth I saw the handwritten note. The past Sunday the church had sung "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name" by Edward Perronent. Unfortunately I had a very memorable typo in the lyrics. Instead of singing "Oh, that with all the sacred throng we at his feet may fall! We'll join the everlasting song and crown him Lord of all..." I had typed: "Oh, that with all the sacred thong we at his feet may fall..." Sacred thong - oh my goodness.
Typo's happen - hopefully this one will not happen to you. The best way to avoid a typo is to cut and paste the lyrics from CCLI and to review the slides each week. At my church, the Music Director and I sit down for 15 minutes each week and check the slides. He reads the lyrics and I read the slides. We are able to catch all spelling and word order problems. If it is a song we have sang recently, we skip the review.
The most common mistake we have found is having the wrong song! With so many of the hymns and songs have the same title or similar title - this mix up can happen very easily. Do you want to see what I mean? Type in "you have been so good to me" in the CCLI search box - eight songs pop up! It would be horrible if the choir/band were singing one song and the congregation had the wrong lyrics - can you imagine?!
Checking the slides each week is not fun - but keeping people in worship by having quality screens is the reason we do what we do. God bless.
