Setting: Mark and Naomi's son, Daniel, came home from Joyland one week singing the hymn, "Great Is My Faithfulness".
Parents: What did you say, Daniel?
Daniel: Great is My Faithfulness.
Parents: No, no, the real words are Great is "Thy" Faithfulness.
Daniel: No, it's "My" Faithfulness. Teacher JN said so.
Someone pointed out to me that this rendition of the song would make sense if teacher JN was actually using "my faithfulness" as a metonym for Jesus.
This reminds me of the verse
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
