One music minister talked about how he had recently led the church in the song "Jesus Saves." The song contains the phrase "Jesus saves" a total of 24 times in four verses! He said, this was too many "s" sounds for me, and in the second verse instead of saying Jesus saves, I accidentally sang "Jesus shaves".

He said I tried my best to control myself, but I kept seeing the traditional image of Jesus with a beard, only now he had an electric shaver in hand. He said, I started shaking up and down, doing my best to keep leading the song with the proper decorum, agonizing that I would repeat my mistake. I don’t think I will ever be able to lead "Jesus Saves" again!
