The Lyrics

This parody idea came after watching Elen Degeneris play a nun raising money selling cheesecake on Paul Reisers and Holly Hunter's show "Mad about you". Is cheesecake friend or food?
What a friend we have in cheesecake, comfort food for all to share
What a pilgrimage to dairy, giving thanks to God with prayer
O what cream we aften partake, O what "manna" taste it bears
Tis a land with milk and honey, cheesecake is the promised layer

Have we party invitations? Champagne bubbles everywhere
Cheesecake always is included, bake it in the stove with care
Can we find a friend so tasteful, that fills all tomorrows fare
Cheesecake soothes with dairy sweetnes, take it to the fridge with care

Are we weak and dairy given, hunger for a creamy layer?
Precious parfait melts all excuse, Dairy Queen is on the way
Do thy chins deny its partaking? eat it to the Lord but spare
With its charms you won't feel guilty, thou shalt have your slivered share

Thought you did a fine job, and cheesecake is heavenly--and after the cheesecake's eaten and gone, Jesus is still a friend.

Just the right amount of seriousness makes this a very good hymn parody (some lines were off by a couple beats, otherwise fantastic).

I bet Bea Arthur, Betty White and Rue McClanahan would like this. You not only take the cake, you burn down the bakery! And, of course, Jesus doesn't care if we're fat.
