PARODY: Hosanna (A Praise Song)

Lest y'all think I've gotten all stodgy and big-in-the-head since I started writing hymns, I'll post this to remind you of my humble roots as a parodist. Hat tip to Mark Buetow for the idea.

Hosanna (A Praise Song to the tune of "Rosanna" by Toto)

1. All I wanna do when confronted with Your glory is close my eyes. Hosanna! Hosanna!
Never thought that a Lord like You could ever care for me. Hosanna!
I love Your Bible but in the name of "love" I will compromise, Hosanna! Hosanna!
Never thought that hearing Law could make me feel so bad.

(bridge) Not quiet three years, then You went away. Hosanna, yeah.
Now You rose, and I have to say . . .

(chorus) Need you every day. Hosanna, yeah! (repeat)

2. Let me see Your face, now, shining like Transfiguration's mountainside. Hosanna! Hosanna!
Never knew disappointing You could ever hurt so bad.
