The Lyrics

Wondering if this would make a great centerpiece to an Easter cantata. It would go between the scene where the stone is found rolled away and the scene where Jesus appears to his disciples before ascending.
[Peter's Soliliquy]
Is he a rabbi?
Or just some Sadduccee?
Say that when He died
We had some catastrophe's
Is He a sham?
Or is He the 'Lamb of God'?
Born as a poor boy
Destined for infamy
But when they cried, "Here's one!"
"Him you know!"
Thrice denied
Rooster crows
Anywhere my face shows
They can trace the Master to me
To me

Granted, they killed the man
Hung His body from a tree
Stuck a spear to make Him bleed
Granted, they killed Mary's son
So why aren't all His followers afraid?
Empty tomb
Tell me, why'd He have to die?
If it were me they'd never catch me at all
But the Son
Wouldn't run
No, they never had to chase Him

Amazed by things He'd done
Turned water into wine
Healed both lepers and the blind
Tempted in the body
Our perfect Lord
Didn't falter once, no sin committed He
God's plan knew (had to bear the whole load)
Willingly He died
The Son of God died bearing the sins of all

(St. Peter's Heavy Metal Guitar Solo)

(transition to small crowd in street)

[man #1]
I've heard them say that He has risen from the grave

[man #2]
Tell the truth
Where's the proof?
Have you seen the man's hand sores?

[man #1]
His disciple Thomas
Touched the Master's wounds and believes

[man #2]
Doubting Thomas?

[man #1]
Doubting Thomas!

Doubting Thomas?

[man #1]
Doubting Thomas!

Doubting Thomas does believe
It must be so

[man #2]
I was a sinner till He set me free

We bid you welcome into God's family
The way is open to all who believe

[man #2]
Now that's done
Status quo
There's no need to grow

New infant!
You need to learn to grow
Learn to grow!
New infant!
You need to learn to grow
Learn to grow!
New infant!
You need to learn to grow
Learn to grow!
Need to learn to grow
Learn to grow!
Need to learn to grow
Learn to grow!
Grow, grow, grow, grow, grow, grow, grow
Little baby
Little baby
Little baby
Learn to grow
He offers up a brand new life for all who believe
Believe! Believe!

[man #1]
You get your sins washed away when you get baptized
And most of your old friends will start to criticize
New baby?
Now don't you think just maybe
Should have thought it out
You don't want to sell out your peers

[man #2]
But what really matters
Everyone will see
New life with the Master
Truly drastic changes in me

Soon all my old friends know...

1) I can't even contemplate doing BoRhap, and 2) I couldn't tailor something as thoughtful and clever as this. Great job. 555

If there's anything that could convert heathen metalheads, this could be it. Very thoughtful and amusing. Even the Rev. Donald Wildmon (a rock hating preacher of renown) would approve.
