But before we left we always had a Good Friday service in the hall and sang the hymn "There Is A Green Hill Far Away" . Amusing now but the continued line of this (as I'm sure all super hymn enthusiast Turnips on here will know is "There is a green hill far away without a city wall." Well when I was nine and used to sing this I often puzzled over why a city wall even came into the description of the hill and why it was worth mentioning that it didn't have a city wall. But of course I now know that "without" was meant in the old meaning of "outside", doh! But do you think the teacher ever had the sense to tell us kids that? Not a chance!
I think it's called lack of communication. Good old days though!
Happy Easter everyone!
