In Which Christian Pop Is Made Fun Of Mightily

May 18, 2017

My sister and I just copied the lyrics to Christian Pop songs into a text file and wrote a program to randomly recombine the lines (this was later changed to use markov chains). We now present to you some of the results.

We made all the titles and none of the lyrics.

For Extremely Early Risers

May I dwell in Your courts, O Lord, 
There to flourish like the trees of Lebanon
Planted in the house of Adonai there to live forevermore
Beautiful one my soul must sing.
6:30 Monday morning
Joy beyond the tears
Your Word
I tried to find anything I could
Release the very guilt that was in my mind,
But every time that I'd trace these lines,
When the waters rise,
And I run to hide,
When I lay it down I realize that
This twisted road eventually, is gonna lead you back to Me

Ice melts to reveal a frozen soul
And give a heart the only thing
Yesterday felt like it would never end
We sing Hallelujah
We worship in awe
Immortal, invisible God
Who died and rose again

Like the stars
Your Word
Lord I stand in wonder
And my world
With one desire
Words heart when they come from an empty heart
And the tears rolling down - (oh yeah)
All I'm looking for now
How glorious, how beautiful you are.

Not on Vulcan Anymore, Toto

Please don't run from me
Savior, You kept the faith in me
And I fall into a daydream
don't know what all of this means
Oh, is it love?
Logic is slipping away
In a moment his life could be new

But You were there, You gave me strength
So this little one might come to know
The glory of Your name, Your name
Cannot be silent, we will praise
The glories of my God and king
You don’t owe me anything my God No.

Awake my soul to sing
A song of living sacrifice

Aren't afraid, aren't ashamed Lord we know who we are
We are your people and we won't be silent
Unified hear us cry at the top of our lungs
it's always the obvious that crashes over me
I will hold Your people in my heart
There was You and there was me
Cause you know what I need

Let faith arise
Open my eyes, open my eyes

Like the stars

This was her time
This is your dance
She swam in the sea

On the Co-occurrence of the Crucifixion and the Nativity

'Cause I'm free
From our fears and sins release us, let us find our rest in Thee
Israel's strength and consolation, hope of all the earth Thou art
Dear desire of every nation, joy of every lonely heart
Is torn asunder
And my world
Has been reborn
I'll be there
All is well, all is well 
Lift up your voice and sing 
Born is now Emmanuel 
Born is our Lord and Savior 
Sing Alleluia 

Joy to the World Just Falls Apart in Kentucky

You're all to us

In every lonely night of waiting
Chains have been undone and we are singing
Joy to the world
Just falls apart
Lord You put
Me back together
No one is a stranger
Love that covers sin

I confess, I admit
I look for life outside of You
I will praise You
To You
We will cry out
Scattered words and empty thoughts
Coming up the driveway
For another Christmas in Kentucky
It’s Christmas in LA
In the desperate streets of India
And the African plains

To know that you hear ever cry I raise to you
Your there when I fall
Open up by heart, we would know You
I give it all to You
And all of creation gives You praise
We're living for Your glory Lord

Our original idea was that Christian Pop is frequently so vague and repetitive that we could probably get things that sounded like real songs by doing this. But then we started doing it and found that the results were funny enough by themselves and mostly forgot our previous goal.
