Jingle Bells, Redeemed

Tired of Christmas songs already? After all, we're in advent....

Last year I suggested we all rise up from our oppression and recreate the verses to the ubiquitous muzak in every establishment this (ADVENT! IT'S ADVENT!) season. My humble attempt this year follows.

ahem. la la la la la la la....

(to the tune of "Jingle Bells")

Sanctus bells! Sanctus bells! Sanctus all the way!
When they rang them way back then, they got got your att'n (now--pray!)
Sanctus bells! Sanctus bells! Sanctus all the way!
Now we hear them and we smile as we live in the Way...

Dashing through the mass
your mind is on a sleigh
Through the prayer we go
distracted all the way (no, no, no!)

Bells by servers rung
New focus on the mass
it is a miracle, after all,
so go renew your task:* Pra-aaaay! (refrain)

*(I hope everyone appreciated my rhyming restraint there.)
