Pluralism Sunday – “Old Time Religion”

 

Pluralism Sunday – a project of ProgressiveChristianity.org – was on May 3, 2015

 

YoungPeoplesChorusofNewYorkCityChurches around the world celebrate that other religions can be as good for others as ours is for us, by including music, readings, and speakers from other faiths in worship. Below is my re-write of the old revival song, Old Time Religion … a good one for Pluralism Sunday! Use freely.

 
 

Old Time Religion

 
Give me that old time religion, give me that old time religion,

give me that old time religion, it’s good enough for me

It was good enough for Noah, it was good enough for Miriam,

it was good enough for Moses, and it’s good enough for me

Give me that old time religion, give me that old time religion,

give me that old time religion, it’s good enough for me

It was good enough for Buddha, it was good enough for Jesus,

it was good enough for Mohammed, and it’s good enough for me

Give me that old time religion, give me that old time religion,

give me that old time religion, it’s good enough for me

It was good enough for Krishna, it was good enough for Gandhi,

it was good enough for Teresa, and it’s good enough for me

Give me that old time religion, give me that old time religion,

give me that old time religion, it’s good enough for me
