Creation

(parody of "Tradition" from "Fiddler on the Roof")
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: this was a quickie, inspired by an offhand comment from a teen who was helping me teach a junior-church lesson on creation. It repeats what the Bible says, namely, that Father, Son, and Holy Spirit were all involved in the creation process.


Creation, creation! Creation!
Creation, creation! Creation!

Who, in six days, made everything that's living,
Waters and the heavens, sun and moon and stars,
And who made the seventh day a day of rest,
To worship God in church and home?

The Father, the Father! Creation!
The Father, the Father! Creation!

Who was there to hover when the waters were
So dark, and earth was cold and bare?
Who convicts the world of sin and judgement there,
Just like it says within the Holy Book?

The Spirit, the Spirit! Creation!
The Spirit, the Spirit! Creation!

My power's there to hold all things together, what was made.
The Church will be a bride for Me in that... new city.

And who came down to preach, like prophets all predict,
To pay for sins of many upon a crucifix?

The Savior, the Savior! Creation!
The Father! The Spirit! The Son! The Godhead! Creation!
