Clear thinking

As Lynne Truss has written, “Proper punctuation is both the sign and the cause of clear thinking.”

This song slide does not present clarity!

My brain filled in dashes and an additional comma as I sang it on Easter Sunday.  Don’t worry:  the mechanical thoughts didn’t destroy my experience of the song, and I doubt the missing punctuation hurt too many others in that assembly.  Still, I would argue that proper punctuation would have clarified and strengthened the song for a bunch of folks, without their being consciously aware of the benefits reaped.
