The Lyrics

God so loved the earth
He gave his only son
The heavens filled with mirth
The Messiah had now come

He never acted out
This carpenter did right
He never learned to doubt
A harbinger of light He cried and died
To free us from our plight
That had us all in chains
God's will and son would reign that day

Chorus:

All his welts
Aching bones
Never whined about all his woes
Never shirked
From his work
To free us all from sin
Hearts would melt
Made of stone
Always find in Him a friend to foes
Now we're free
You and me
Like Abraham's descendants

He cross-trained all his life
So saving all of ours
He overcame the fall
His visage badly marred
Forever he shall reign
In truth victor’ously
His might has conquered sin
The son of man who leads us all with prayer
A new man now declares
I'll live rejoicefully!
That new man who is she?



Once she knelt
By His throne
Pratt falling prostrate feeling prone
Quivering
Shivering
She came to make amends
What He smelt
Was cologne
The scent of a woman well known
She laid bare
With her hair
As she rubbed His feet repentant


whoa, whoa



Somewhere free
Some off key
A choir sings the old old story
A local church
A yokel perched
Who just flubs his way to glory
Merrily
Warbily
They sing with their lives dependant
Great is he
Glory Be
His beauty is most resplendent
Not a one's
Moribund
So unlike the unrepentant

The only reason I gave a 1 for "How Funny" is because this isn't a humorous rewriting. But, I still think it's very well-written!
