Childhood Mistake

I was thinking about those slight changes in lyrics that kids hear... I finally remembered one of mine.

Whenever somebody got baptized at my church the preacher would say the same thing,
"United with Christ in death, risen to walk in newness of life."

I now admit to believing that they were saying,
"United with Christ in death, risen to walk in Unis of life."
I could never figure out what 'unis of life' was... I thought maybe it had to do with being united with Christ...

Growing up I used to wonder at the cover of the Baptist Hymnal. It had a scrolled "L" at the end that looked more like a "J." I remember asking my mom what "Hymnaj" meant one day and her saying, "I don't know."
