a responsorial hymn according to a six year old...

... "all the ends of the earth" [psalm 98] becomes "all the ants of the earth..." gleefully song at the tops of his lungs. By verse three the response had morphed into "the killer ants of the earth...", again, belted out at maximum volume.



... never a dull moment.

He'll make a great friar someday. Let that comfort you.

But isn't it indeed conceivable that all the ants of the earth have seen the glory of God?

Hey, it's better than the Glory and Praise version.

You can probably guess what us boys turned "Peace is flowing like a river" into in 6th grade. LOL.

Sadly, the lyrics worked extremely well too even though we only changed the first word.
