Theological Song

(parody of "The Logical Song" by Supertramp)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: Coming up with the title for this one was like shooting fish in a barrel, but the content was another story. Literally. I set out to use a bunch of lofty theological concepts, but got nowhere. I wound up writing about the human progression from childlike innocence, to sin, to seeking comfort in a works-based religion (it doesn't matter which one, they're all the same in the end), to finally turning to Christ. If that isn't theological enough for you, see me after class.

When I was young, I wanted life that was peaceable, spiritual, devotional, with miracles.
But what I heard and I read, it was convicting so heavily, powerfully, painfully touching me.

And then I fell right away, to reach a life indefensible, illogical, irresponsible, impractical.
And it showed what I learned, and God became so expendable, inimical, ineffectual, ridiculed.

When a life eternal's what I seek,
The cost has run too steep;
I'm such a sinful man.
I won't freeze — it's Hell where I'll get burned.
I know itís what I've earned.
Please point me to I AM.

They taught me a way, so they would not call me heretical, sensual, unteachable, subliminal.
But now I find thereís a Name, and I can see Him as merciful, approachable, all-powerful and knowable!

He died, for all the world to free,
And rose again, did He;
It's such a simple plan.
And if Jesus tells us He's the Word,
My heart, I've found, is stirred.
Please bring me to the Lamb, to the Lamb, to the Lamb!
