Cabin 9 return in this musical ode to the Liturgical season of Lent! Don't break that fast!

lyrics

PRIEST:
How do you supplement your faith
When faith life's getting more convicting each day?
Red lines, Bread lines, Altar wine
And now this prep time to give and obey:

Lent!

WORSHIP LEADER:
How do you write a song
when the words are wrong
Cause Hallelujahs can't go in there?
When the chords are sombre
Will they no longer
Praise God with their hands in the air?

PRIEST: My parish is dozing!

LEADER: This psalm needs composing!

BOTH:
How we gonna pray?
How we gonna play?
How we gonna say
Mass this Lent?

GAMER:
How do you give up wires when you’re starting to learn
All the right techniques for pwning the noobs?

STONER:
How do you quit smoking weed
When you just scored the deed to a righteous doob?

GAMER: You light up a mean blaze

STONER: Cause Sundays

GAMER: Are cheat days!

BOTH:
Man I wanna play
Man I want a J
How we gonna wait
Past this Lent?

STUDENT 1:
How do you stay on your feet
When you're on retreat
From something sweet
And your fast is strict?

STUDENT 2:
Welcome on the scene--
Oog, I need caffeine
Everything's a dream
Hmm... I'll just take a quick…

STUDENT 1: Dude, you okay?

STUDENT 2: *starts* I'm awake!

BOTH:
Need my coffee break
Need my slice of cake
How we gonna make
Fasts this Lent?

PRIEST:
A season for giving alms with compassionate fire

WORSHIP LEADER:
A time of atonement to turn back to God’s holy writ

SLACKERS:
Zoom in as they turn their backs to the crowd

STUDENTS:
And see the light of the Saviour’s glow

ALL:
How do you leave your wealth behind
When it keeps finding ways to get to your heart?
To reach inside and see that all we boast about
Is borrowed from God; lent!

How do you remember your saviour
Came here, taught and suffered
Spilled his blood as your pay
To find your treasure in heaven
Where the moths and vermin can’t destroy
Or thieves take away

PRIEST:
Come and write in the sand
Repent where you stand

WORSHIP LEADER:
Take the hand with the scar

STONER:
Blow the shofar

ALL:
When things get tough
His Love’s enough

We're not gonna sway
We’re not gonna stray
We’re not gonna break
Fasts this Lent
Pacts this Lent
Laws this Lent
Lent Lent Lent Lent Lent
We’re not gonna break Lent

Cause everything is lent!
