The Awesome Creed

We believe in one God,
The Father, the Originator,
maker of sex and drums,
and rock and roll.

We believe in one Personal Jesus,
begotten of the father,
flesh and bone, by the telephone.
Through him, all things were made:
He said, “let there be light, sound, drums, guitar.”
For us and our salvation,
He came down the Stairway from Rock and Roll Heaven:
By the power of the Spirit in the Sky
It came to pass that Rock and Roll was born,
And He put it in the soul of everyone.
For our sake, the music died.
The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast.
But there is more to the picture
Than meets the eye:
Rock and Roll will never die.

We believe in the Spirit in the Sky, the friend, the giver of rest,
Who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
He has spoken through the Prophets
Who have written on the subway walls.
We believe in one holy diver,
We acknowledge one messiah,
Who doesn’t look a thing like Jesus
But is close enough for rock and roll. Amen.
