The next hit worship song… prepare to have your socks blessed off

 

In light of the previous post on Chris Tomlin’s poetic laziness, I mustmention how appreciative I am that the author of this song was quite intentional about the rhyme scheme with pairings of “strawberry jam” and “country ham” as well as “Cinnamon O’s” and “Cherios.”

But in some form of seriousness, from my vantage point, this worship song seems to be sung with a good measure of conviction (or at least it appears so from the superficial perspective of watching this youtube clip). So the question is, even though this song is laughable, utterly ridiculous, could I meet God through this song in worship?

I guess I should point out that I do have some theological questions with the implication that either we will be raptured away b4 breakfast or that there will be no food in heaven (I don’t think I agree with either). But either way, this song perhaps gives an extreme example of the question:
if worship is offered in sincerity, is it valid?

I don’t know answer, but I can say it definitely made my day.

The Breakfast Song

The nutritionists say that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day
It helps to perk us up and get us on our way
But there is a Kingdom coming that’s part of God’s plan
When God’s word is all we need to feed man
No mo bacon
No mo sausage
No mo orange juice
No mo coffee
No mo biscuits
No mo light bread
No mo grits
No mo scrambled eggs
One of these mornings
God is gonna call me home
I won’t need no breakfast
I’ll be gone, gone (2x)
God is gonna call me home
I’ve been reborn
No mo oatmeal
No mo pancakes
No mo Sugar and rice
No more beef steaks
No mo maple syrup
No mo strawberry jam
No mo gravy
No mo country ham
(chorus)
No mo Captain Crunch
No mo Cinnamon O’s
No mo Lucky Charms
No mo Cheerios
No mo Wheaties
No mo Frosted Flakes
No mo Rice Krispies
No mo Nuts of Grapes
(chorus)
No mo chicken
No mo pork chops
No more Lipton Tea
No mo soda pop
No more donuts
No mo grapefruits
No mo apple pie
No mo mixed fruits
(chorus)
No mo oatmeal
No mo cornflakes
No mo bacon
No mo beef steaks
No mo biscuits
No mo light bread
No mo beef stew
No mo scrambled eggs
One of these mornings (9x)
God is gonna call me home
I won’t need no breakfast
I’ll be gone
