AMILIA: Daddy, what does “Weigh Upon” mean?
ME: It means you’re really worried about something. Like, “Whether or not you’ll go to college really weighs upon me.”
AMILIA: Oh. So why do we sing, “I will weigh upon the Lord”?
ME: No, Sweetie. That’s WAIT. “I will WAIT upon the Lord,” not “I’ll WEIGH upon the Lord.”
AMILIA: OH! That makes much more sense. People should pronounce words better when they sing.
