    Okay, nobody else may find this as funny as I did but if you've ever listened to a choir sing and wondered "What the hell are they saying?" this might give you a laugh.

    I'm such a nerd, I laughed until I cried. Seriously.

    As a former music major, church attendee, choir participant, and viewer of this video.. Thank you! I laughed my ass off watching that!

    Funny indeed. If you must know, "Yes, I'm Sitting" is actually "Blessed City," and the original words are here:

    However, this choir seems to have a revised version of the words, substituting "she" for "thou," "our" for "thy," "joy" for "heights," and so on.

    I've got a friend who was in the choir during her college days. Have to send her this.
