“Sunday School Rock” – Musical Musings in March

Today’s song is a blast from the past. In the 1990’s, Carman came on the scene with his unique style. Music videos were all the rage and he jumped into the mix. Some were perhaps a little hokey, but when you look past all of the wild production, you see his heart.


IMAG1492Carman brought music such as “I Will Serve the Lord,” “The Prayer Anthem,” “Jesus is the Lamb,” “Satan Bite the Dust,” and “Sunday School Rock.” What I love about Carman is that he introduced fun into the mix. Kids were singing his music, dancing to the beat and hearing the message of God.


There was a time and place for Carman’s music and I’m thankful that I’ve been able to part of that time period.


So today, I’m going to share one of my favorites. “Sunday School Rock” will take you back to the hand jive days, so let’s get those hands moving and sing along with Carman.

“Sunday School Rock”


Listen up now ya’ll, I’m gonna try and reach ya
Class is now in section, pay attention to the teacher
We’re goin’ through the Book, Genesis to Revelation
I’ll teach your head how to spread salvation to the nation


We’ll start with the basics, a checklist for the saints
Love the Lord with all your heart and mind and soul and strength
To fear the Lord is wisdom, to serve the Lord divine
To really break it down just repeat these words of mine


I love Jesus
Yes I do
I love Jesus
How ’bout you?
I love Jesus, yes I do, I love Jesus how ‘bout you


Grab your pen and paper, the lesson now beings
First up Church artillery ’cause we got war with sin
God trains us through evangelists, apostles, prophets too
Pastors, teachers, five in all ’cause we got work to do


Discernment, tongues, interpretation, prophecy, and faith
Wisdom, knowledge, healing, miracles, yeah these are great
These gifts are like atomic bombs, they make the Word explode
But they just don’t mean nothin’ unless you know the code
That code is…





The bottom line, the way to win
Is up with Jesus, down with sin
The Word is clear, easy to see
Only Christ can set you free


Hide the Word in your heart
When you grow you won’t depart
Grind the Devil to the ground
Sunday School is throwing down!




Now, let’s share Jesus’ love with the world! I love Jesus!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
