Hymns that burn!

Chris over at My Two Cents apparently had too much time on his hands as he put together the 5 6 Worstest American Idle style “hymns” ever heard – eva!

In the list was my “favorite” hymn-to-hate – I Give You Freedom (aka Free Will Song). But as performances go, there are some real gems out there. Take this one for instance – Jesus is my Friend (He will never leave you flat!)

Frightening as that is, its actually the best of the bunch. Yes, there are worse ones out there. Just watch and then vote. And just in case you wanted to sing along to this video and had trouble following along with the lyrics, well here you go…

Jesus is a friend of mine by Sonseed

Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is my friend. Jesus is a friend of mine.
I have a friend in Jesus. Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is my friend. Jesus is a friend of mine.

He taught me how to live, my life as it should be.
He taught me how to turn my cheek when people laugh at me.
I’ve had friends before, and I can tell you that, He’s one who will never leave you flat.

Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is my friend. Jesus is a friend of mine.
I have a friend in Jesus. Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is my friend. Jesus is a friend of mine.

He taught me how to pray, and how to save my soul.
He taught me how to praise my God and still play rock and roll.
The music may sound different but the message is the same.
It’s just the instruments who praise His name.

Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is my friend. Jesus is a friend of mine.
I have a friend in Jesus. Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is a friend of mine. Jesus is a friend of mine.

-funky guitar riff-

Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is a friend of mine.

Once I tried to run, I tried to run and hide.
But Jesus came and found me and He touched me down inside.
He is like Mountie, He always gets His man, and He’ll zap you any way he can.
zap.

Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is my friend. Jesus is a friend of mine.
I have a friend in Jesus. Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is my friend. Jesus is a friend of mine.

He loves me when I’m right, He loves me when I’m wrong.
He loves me when I waste my time by writing silly songs.
He loves me when I’m quiet and I have nothing to say.
He’ll love me when I’m perfect if I ever get that way.
whooo!

Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is my friend. Jesus is a friend of mine.
I have a friend in Jesus. Jesus is a friend of mine.
Jesus is my friend. Jesus is a friend of mine.
I have a friend in Jesus. Jesus is a friend of mine.
J-J-J-Jesus.
Jesus is a friend of mine.

    I like the “-funky guitar riff-” other than that — I don’t think they were zapped with enough voltage…

    Sorry, just not much to add I guess. I figure these were “you might also like:” links or you just got really bored and started going through the archives. Either way, i’m glad these older posts get some attention.

    Speaking of links, I find the Similar posts to be more relevant to the “current” post but the thumbnail of You Might Also Like is very catchy. Wish they could be combined.
