The Lyrics

Not so much a parody, than a re-write. As well as singing funny lyrics to great melodies, I also like to sing lyrics closer to home, also to great melodies. Thought I'd share this one with y'all, in the spirit of Lionel Martens creative Christian-based parodies. This one's more thoughtful than humorous, but I hope it is still enjoyed by my amiright compadres-in-verse.
When I stray off of the path I’ve taken,
And my heart is filled with grief,
I hear Jesus whisper, “Rest in Me.”
When the little faith I have is shaken,
And my soul, it needs relief,
I hear Jesus whisper, “Rest in Me.

Rest in Me, rest in Me. Let it be, and be free.
I’m the only answer that you need.”

When I think the battle’s over,
Then I’m hit, and fall down to my knees,
I hear Jesus whisper, “Rest in Me.”
Though I’m sometimes overwhelmed with sorrow,
Diggin’ up old memories,
I hear Jesus whisper, “Let them be.

Let them be, let ‘em be. Rest in Me, and be free.
Child, you are forgiven, let them be.”

(instrumental break)

Rest in Me, rest in Me. Let it be, and be free.
I’m the only answer that you need.”

“Rest in Me. Just believe
Life is more than what you see.
I’m the only answer that you need.
There’s no other answer – Rest in Me.”
God bless.

Wonder what Mother Mary would think of this? :) ("You stole my fire, Son!"). A good non-funny parody is better than a bad parody trying to be funny anyday.

Thanks, CML. This is the first community site I've been a part of, and I didn't realize there were guidelines. Makes sense. No more jingles, or at least any less than 10 lines.

What a wonderful expansion of Matthew 11:28-30! Thank you and keep these coming. Praying many blessings for you.

Agrimorfee - I responded earlier, but I don’t see it now. Anyway, it just said thank you for the “glowing” review. Appreciate the encouragement.

Thanks, Jonathan. This “parody” (I always think of a parody as being funny) is kind of a personal prayer for me. If I can’t be real about my humanity, my spirituality won’t be real either. I do have a few more like this, so I’ll submit them in between my other “more funnier” parody.
