NLTFOT: God the Man to the Tune of Spiderman

I was minding my own business one afternoon last week, doing some chores, when my daughter tuned on some music. A couple of songs into the list, the theme from Spiderman came on and I found myself thinking that would be a fun tune for new lyrics for this category of New Lyrics to Familiar Old Tunes. I didn’t have time to think more about it then. I didn’t think about it again at all for the rest of the day, so was surprised at what started happening in my brain when I tried to sleep. The tune and some new lyrics began coming to mind. I keep paper and pen by my bed, because I know from experience that I often can’t sleep unless I “release” such words on paper. So I wrote down the first line, then laid back down. No sooner had I done that, then another line came to mind. This was repeated several times by the light of my iPhone so that I wouldn’t disturb my husband’s sleep. I finally had nearly a whole song, but unfortunately did not know the tune quite well enough to know if I was “done.” However, I managed to sleep some while my brain worked on more of the song. I woke up thinking about it. Thus, I now present my new lyrics to God the Man, as sung by me. The lyrics are printed below and available as a downloadable pdf. If you like the song, please share it and like it on facebook and vimeo ! (To like on facebook, google, or twitter, there are buttons at the bottom of the post. To “like” on vimeo, there is a heart in the upper right hand corner of the video screen.)

God The Man 

God the Man,

God the Son,

Everyone will learn what He has done.

 

Some deny,

Some will scorn,

Those who believe will be reborn.

He died – but He came back to life.

 

God of Love,

God of Might,

One of a kind; He’s always right!

 

Some ignore,

Some follow,

No matter what, they all will know

He is – the Force behind this life

 

He brought forth the light,

He rolled out the sea,

He gives me each breath,

He set my heart free!

 

Since He’s God

you can depend

He knows the beginning from the end.

 

Every day

is in His hand.

It will be as He has planned

No fear – because He’s in control!

 

(instrumental interlude)

 

There can only

be one God.

All other claims are just a fraud.

 

Be deceived

at your own risk.

I’m not falling for their tricks.

He gives —- a chance to decide.

 

He brought forth the light,

He rolled out the sea,

He gives me each breath,

He set my heart free!

 

God the Man!

God the Son!

He is the key to true freedom!

 

Some deny,

Some will scorn,

Those who believe will be reborn.

He can save and restore.

 

God of Love!

God of Might!

One of a kind, He’s always right.

 

Some ignore,

Some follow,

No matter what, they all will know -

 

He is the Great I AM!

And here is just an audio version, in case you would like to download that to a music player/iPod:

It makes me want to dance.

Dancing barefoot on a local path                                 to the new song God the Man.

Dancing barefoot on a local path to the new song God the Man.
