The Lyrics

I expect 1's for 'how funny' on this one, but I'll take my chances.
What would you think if I told you the tomb
Was the reason that we are set free?
All of our fears will be gone before long
There's forgiveness for all who believe
Well you see Christ already died for your sins
I believe Christ already died for my sins
Don't you see Christ already died for our sins?

Would you believe that His love has a way
To melt hearts that are made of stone?
And did you know that He'll come back someday
To take home all those that are His own?
Oh, don't you see Christ already died for your sins?
I believe Christ already died for my sins
Well you see Christ already died for our sins

Have you told anybody
About His wonderful love?
Did you feed anybody
And show them Jesus's love?

Can you believe in a love that won't die?
In a washing that can remove all sin's grime?
What would you be if you lived in the light
With your future being redefined?
Oh, don't you see Christ already died for your sins?
I believe Christ already died for my sins
Well you see Christ already died for our sins

Did you tell everybody
About His amazing love
Did you help anybody
And show them Jesus's love?

Oh, don't you see Christ already died for your sins?
I believe Christ already died for my sins
Well you see Christ already died for our sins
Yes I believe Christ already died for my sins
Christ already died for your sins

Tim, I just pretended that the "How Funny" vote category said "How Profound" and fived it anyway. Something this good deserves straight fives. And I think you have told somebody with this parody. Well done and inspiring. Peace.

A very profound parody that I hope everyone reads. 5's

Tim, I don't like this parody subject matter, but I would never think of giving you "ones" for it. I think the fastest way to get them is to take the opposite point of view from what you have here. And I'm going to use that idea and your inspiration to address this subject tomorrow and we'll see who gets slammed faster.

Count my How Funny also as Profundity. Why do Celine Dion songs inspire us to love one another more than Martin Luther's, which generally are pretty painful? And why does everything pale before the libretto of Messiah? Mundane libretto expresses a personal love from the human soul of the writer and libretto from sacred writings expresses a more universal love. So if I were your wife and you sang me this one night in bed, it would be the cat's pyjamas, because it is an expression of personal love to Jesus in a very intimate way.That kind of love I do not think transfers publicly and successfully on a Beatles tune unless you are too young to know that the original lyrics were rather naughty.

Considering the Good Lord's track record for taking something bad and turning it to good I think it's a great pick of OS to do the same in this parody. I see nothing wrong with it and it transfers beautifully in true parodic style.

Lovely parody, Tim!

It wasn't the tomb, it was the man who was in it. Key word being "was."

I could see it being used in a evangelistic kind of program. Not my cup of tea, but I hear the sentiment and it's sincere. Nice songwriting.
