Brian Amend (and with a name like that, he’s born to write parodies of hymns) writes:

Hello, I’ve vented my spleen creatively, and I hoped you might appreciate it. I hope it will provide consolation for you should you have to cross that barren desert. (For the record and full disclosure, I should say that I actually do like “Cross the Barren Desert” and “Here I Am, Lord.” But the template just came together so well on this one). Kind regards and thoughts, Brian

Here We Are Lord

I the Lord of self-esteem

Have an apostolic team.

Give them food you’ve stowed away

And we’ll have a feast today;

That you’ll provide.

Here we are Lord,

You’ve never needed us more, Lord,

Good thing we’re here.

Eucharist of honey wheat

With blessed crumbs that taste so sweet

Know that I’m among you now,

But don’t dare ask Father how;

You’ll be turned away.

Here we are Lord,

You’ve never needed us more, Lord,

Good thing we’re here.

Thank goodness you taught us how to share

How to show the world we care.

With us this world’s bound to grow

Because of all the things we know

About what it needs.

Here we are Lord,

You’ve never needed us more, Lord,

Good thing we’re here.

We have walls of plaster blank,

Banners hang from every flank,

Justicing with every breath,

We’ve removed even death

From Liturgy

Here we are Lord,

You’ve never needed us more, Lord,

Good thing we’re here.
