“Harrison” (by Pr. Charles Henrickson, the wag tailoring the doggerel)

One of the nice aspects of the BJS Conference is how much fun we have outside of the main program. Getting to meet and visit with folks in the hallways and at the meals and the parties–it’s a great opportunity to relax and enjoy each other’s company. And we have some laughs. Here’s a little lighthearted ditty we unveiled Friday night, written by yours truly, the wag tailoring the doggerel. Hope you enjoy it! Click one of the music links and sing along!

HARRISON
Tune: “Harrigan” Original MIDI

Who is the man whose belief cares for human grief?
Harrison, that’s Matt!
Who is the chief when you find that you need relief?
Harrison, that’s Matt!
And he’s just as sharp in the Bible and that
As that Luther or Chemnitz or Sasse cat
Who is the man plays a banjo each time he can?
Harrison, that’s Matt!

H, A, double-R, I, S, O, N spells “Harrison”
A president who’ll fill the seat where Walther sat
A pastor who can tell you where the altar’s at
H, A, double-R, I, S, O, N, that’s that!
He’s the man with the plan that the Synod can rally to
Harrison, that’s Matt!

Who is the man that’s a smash at theology?
Harrison, that’s Matt!
Who is the man whose mustache rates a “Golly gee!”?
Harrison, that’s Matt!
It’s time that we roll out the welcome mat
It’s time that we give him a turn at bat
Who is the gent that we want for our president?
Harrison, that’s Matt!

H, A, double-R, I, S, O, N spells “Harrison”
A president who’ll fill the seat where Walther sat
A pastor who can tell you where the altar’s at
H, A, double-R, I, S, O, N, that’s that!
He’s the man with the plan that the Synod can rally to
Harrison, that’s Matt!
