He’s a Peach of a Savior

January 19, 2006

This one’s for you Hennyfair! You will like it because you are a botanist.

“Peach of a Savior”
sung roughly to the tune of Battle Hymn of the Republic

He’s a peach of a Savior (act like you’re picking a peach)
He’s the apple of my eye! (point to your eye)
He trims back the branches when the branches get too high. (pretend hedgeclippers)
He bears fruit in season (cross arms over your chest)
and His love will never die! (Shake head and make “never” sign)
And that’s why I’m bananas for the Lord! (make the “she’s crazy sign”)

Glory, Glory we’re the branches!
Glory, Glory we’re the branches!
Glory, Glory we’re the branches!
And that’s why I’m bananas for the Lord!

All throughout the chorus, you just keep acting like trees. Stick out your arms and legs like branches. Do the crazy sign at the end again.

Good luck!

    I stood up from my comfortable leather office chair and tried that out!
    Too bad it doesn’t translate into Swedish to be “bananas” about something. Otherwise the song would have been great for God’s Super School. But, it has inspired me to come up with some sort of song having to do with Jesus that I could put to the music of the Swedish national anthem. How fun!

  2. Great! That sounds like fun 🙂

  3. Yes…I know that one! I’m thinking I’ll have them do like 3 songs. Two “church” songs and then end with the chocolate milk song! (It’s a joke at the church that I “wrote” a song about chocolate milk but refuse to sing it to anyone.) So, we’ll use that one, if you can think of any others I’m up for suggestions. That goes for anyone who reads this! Thanks!!! 🙂

  4. Have you heard, “Who’s the King of the Jungle”? That’s a classic! Jenny… when/if you’re in town next week I can teach it to ya (if you don’t already know it that is)! Or perhaps I will just have to record it somehow and figure out how to turn it into an mp3 and put it online!

  5. I learned a version where you “peel” your banana/finger at the end instead of the loony sign. Gives the opportunity to point to heaven/the Lord at the end.
