Hymns In Unexpected Places

Hymns are beautiful. Beautiful expressions of faith, truth, doctrine.

Hymns are also usually only heard in church.

Yet there are other places, unexpected places, where hymns have been heard.

Abide With Me is great. But hearing it in a graveyard. Not so much.

Breathe On Me is wonderful at church. But when your dentist is bent over your face extracting a tooth? Whew! (“Dirty mouth? Get Orbit).

And He Touched Me takes on an entirely new meaning when overheard at the proctologist’s office!

Where are some weird places you’ve heard hymns?
