Modern Trinitarian

I am the very model of modern Trinitarian.

Sung to the tune of "I am the very model of a modern major general"

I am the very model of modern Trinitarian.
Not like the Calvinists or even those Arminians.
Before the cosmos was created, even before time
They made a plan that in the end would turn out very fine.
Father, Son and Holy Ghost picked us before the start
To be officially adopted and not so far apart.

Chorus:
Father, Son and Holy Ghost picked us before the start
To be officially adopted and not so far apart.

Then Jesus appeared here on earth as God Incarnate
Some said He was a holy god, others said a primate.
He skipped church a lot and taught the wise of all things scriptural
To their surprise this prodigy was not at all liturgical.
He hung out with hookers, thieves and other vermin
But the worst of all were the very smelly fishermen.

Chorus:
He hung out with hookers, thieves and other vermin
But the worst of all were the very smelly fishermen.

He came not to condemn this world but to seek and save
He did His work successfully He even left His grave.
He conquered both sin and death and freed us from religion
We live now in relationship and not by superstition.
He told us to trust in Him and learn to live by love
Our light comes from Him within and not from far above.

Chorus:
He told us to live in Him and learn to live by love
Our light comes from Him within and not from far above.

Augustine and the Greeks, they concocted a strange brew
It served to control the masses and caused confusion to.
Confess and repent constantly; that is the thing to do
If you don't you will be in an eternal barbeque.
God will flee from a tiny sin so you must always pray,
A great divide between us and God, that is what they say

Solo:
We say our God is in us always, He dwells within our heart
There is nothing we could ever do that would make Him part.
Chorus (Slowly and words drawn out):
We say our God is in us always, He dwells within our heart
There is nothing we could ever do that would make Him part.

From Ireanaeus and Athanasius to a guy named Baxter Kruger
Every day the truth of it becomes a little clearer.
The Nicene Creed sets our tone of things theological
In it we stand orthodox and not at all heretical.
Some say His holiness causes Him to stand alone above,
We say no matter what else He is, we know that God is love.

Chorus:
We say no matter what else He is, we know that God is love.
We say no matter what else He is, we know that God is love.

    Vanity of vanities, all is vanity; so party on!
