Atheiests Don’t Have No Songs

Music is always a big deal at our house and especially so on Sundays. Therefore, without further ado, here’s the gleefully swiped youtube from Gerard at American Digest: Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Riders sing at 2010 Merlefest

Christians have their hymns and pages, (hymns and pages)
Havah Nagilah is for the Jews, (for the Jews)
Baptists have their rock of ages, (rock of ages)
Atheists just sing the blues.

Romantics play Claire de Lune, (Claire de Lune)
Born agains sing He is Risen,
But no one ever wrote a tune, (wrote a tune)
For godless existentialism.

For Atheists, There’s no good news,
They’ll never sing a song of faith.
In their songs they have a rule,
The “he” is always lowercase.

The “he” is always lowercase.

Some folks sing a Bach cantata, (Bach cantata)
Lutherans get Christmas trees,
Atheist songs add up to nada, (up to nada)
But they do have Sundays Free.

Some folks sing – they sing to heaven, (sing to heaven)
Coptics have the book of scrolls,
Numerologists count – they count to seven, (count to seven)
Atheists have rock and roll.

For atheists, there’s no good news.

They’ll never sing a song of faith
In their songs they have a rule,
The “he” is always lowercase.

The “he” is always lowercase.

Atheists – Atheists – Atheists

Don’t Have No Songs.

Christians have their hymns and pages,
Havah Nagilah is for the Jews,
Baptists have their rock of ages,
Atheists just sing the blues.

Catholics dress up for mass
and listen to Gregorian chants.
Atheists, just take a pass
watch football in their underpants.

Watch Football in Their Underpants

Atheists – Atheists – Atheists

Don’t have no songs.

Don’t Have No Songs.

    We have an entire hymnal of songs suitable for an atheist, agnostic, or like me, a secular humanist, in our church. We celebrate many things in our hymns, just not a supernatural higher power.

    This is a very sill song.
    I bet if you didn’t spend all your time singing and giving praise to your invisable friend, you could come up with something better.

    I like my invisible friend and He likes me. He’d like you, too, if you gave Him the chance.

    This is funny and sad at the same time. The reality is as the Good Book says, “One day EVERY knee will bow and EVERY tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.” That includes moderates, conservatives, liberals, all religions, all non-religions, atheists, secular humanists, agnostics – everyone will bow (whether they believed in life or not). AND on that day, my “invisible friend” will receive ALL praises, glory, laud and honor. AMEN!
