The Lyrics

Waiting for dawn on third day
Searching for something to pray
Flashing light comes from the tomb
Sin and death have met their doom
Kneel and heed the Savior's call
John 3:16 says it all

Smiling kindly is His face
Washing sinners clean with grace
Now His loving hand extends
Offers life that never ends
Matthew, Peter, Mark, and Paul
John 3:16 says it all

Feeling like I ought to weep
Sinning's doom is gone for keeps
Searching for something to pray
"Thank you Lord" is what I'll say
John 3:16 says it all
John 3:16 says it all

This is an outstanding work, JD. I am not sure how to adequately commend you for this piece, except to say thank you.
Johnny D - October 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Guy and JJ. It comes from a part of my life that I keep private most of the time...but occasionally inspiration comes along, and when it does, I go with the flow.

Nice and well-paced, but I didn't find it particularly funny. Oh, well. Praise the Lord! Christians for Kerry/Christians against Bush http://mnl_1221.tripod.com/kerrybush.html

Lovely Johnny, but I'm sad that you left out Luke... ;-)
Johnny D - October 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Steven and Meriadoc. 'Tis not possible to leave out Luke, Meriadoc, he is At One With The Force...oops, sorry, wrong Luke! ;-)

And talking of pushing the 'wrong Luke' envelope over the limit... I second Steve C. Not only does John 3:16 inspire professional wrestlers, it obviously makes for divine parodying.

DNKOS but 555 for pure beauty of thought

Thank you, Luke & Dee.

Love it! So will my Christian buddy. BTW, what is DNKOS ?
Johnny D - December 02, 2004 - Report this comment
Thank you, Scott! "DNKOS" = "Do Not Know Original Song".
