Diction is Platinum

Ever had trouble understanding the words while listening to a congregation sing a hymn? Well, you could open up the hymnal, silly, and at least read along. The subtitles in the following video are evidently somebody's stab at interpreting the mushy diction in an otherwise powerful rendition of an English hymn. It's a screamingly funny illustration of a new principle I have just invented: Silence is golden...but diction is platinum!

EDIT: Check out the "menu" after playing this video. As I write this, one of the videos on the menu, titled "Not the Nine O'Clock News: Songs of Praise," is a hilarious sketch starring Rowan Atkinson.
