The Lyrics

I literally wrote the lyrics to the song as I was driving in this morning, so go figure... This world is starting to lose a LOT of faith and love. Faith is one of our STRONGEST assets that can NEVER diminish in this economy. It can only go in one direction...up, and it will carry us though everything! No matter what denomination, Keep up the faith... Happy Holidays to all...
On Easter day,
Empty tomb makes us remember;
Christ has arose.
Faith spreads in his people, great gifts he will bestow,
And the proof is on that sacred shroud we know.

He moved the rock,
Faith keeps us.. smilin'.

Christ got calls,
And powers from Al_mighty.
The crowds will conjugate.
He preaches love and friendship; God's love may it reign.
His greatness and his worship ascertain.

He moved the rock,
Christ rose no.. de_nyin'.

Proof of God's love,
So just pray and faith will soar;
I'm praying in this melody.
I kneel upon God's thunder bad feelings all have died.
Seek forever love, faith never will I hide.

He moved the rock,
I am now.. smilin'.

I read his book,
So his spirit will protect me;
It is stronger than some armor.
Emerged from his tomb, life is blessed in wombs.
We're born for love and God's love blesses me.

He moved the rock,
God's love no.. de_nyin'.

And his rock frees our pain;
And in Heaven, no one cries...........

With Phil's atheist humor flooding Amiright, it's refreshing to finally see a parody that acknowledges religion in a friendly light. Happy Easter.

Nice of you to observe the Holy Week! It's tradition in our family, especially since we're Filipinos, who are spiritual and religious since we're Roman Catholics. And yes, praying is important in every day life, because good things happen to us when we pray. When I read/sang through this, I felt as if my sins were forever washed away! May you be blessed and baptized with 3 sets of 5's! We're going to church later.

Always good to observe praise other just for parodies. Happy Easter to All.

You've resurected this ol' tune just in time... A Trinity of fives!
On a somber note, after reading your uplifting version, I'm definitely gonna have to scrap my "I Am A Spock" version!

Good reminder of God's loving provision - John 3:16 - but look up the origin of the word Easter in the encyclopedia. Shalom.

Happy belated Easter! Well written for the intended audience...and I think everyone can get something out of it.
Matthias - May 10, 2010 - Report this comment
"Faith spreads in his people, great gifts he will bestow" like painted eggs, and giant chocolate bunnies? Happy Eater Mark great message for the real meaning behind the holiday.

No doubt it's well written and I love it, but obviously it loses points in funny. Sorry. Otherwise, very beautiful

This one was very well written Mark. On a funny scale, there really wasn't anything, but not all parodies are meant to be funny, and I can respect that. My believes may be somewhat different than yours, but I can respect your faith and love as expressed in this song, and I commend you on actually making a parody about Easter that focused on the subject which is really the spirit behind its existence. 555, with "Met Goal" replacing "Funny"

Thanks, Dave. Not meaning to inpose beliefs, but definitely meaning to wish ALL well and good things....

(SOTM) Definite props for having the balls to write this one. Being a Christian myself I can understand the message you're getting across. The parody may lack in funny, but that's not entirely necessary for this kind of parody. 555 and God bless.
