Let Another One In – Gospel Song For Wavering Atheists

If I’m ever standing up at the pearly gates
I’ll need to speak to Peter but not in front of my mates
When it comes to contrition, don’t know where to begin
But can you please ask the Lord and let another one in?

Oh Lord I’m sorry ’bout my sinnin’
The whiskey, wine and women
I need a new beginnin’
So let another one in

Hey Pete, I said some things I never shoulda said
’bout science being God and there’s nothing once you’re dead
But just lately I’ve a feeling my conviction’s wearing thin
So can you please ask the Lord to let another one in?

Oh Lord I’m sorry ’bout my disbelievin’
The lying and the thievin’
But can’t you see I’m grievin’
And let another one in?

So hear me Peter, I really think I’ve made my case
Won’t you please help this sinner reach a state of grace?
I don’t have a doubt now ’bout original sin
So won’t you please ask the Lord to let another one in?

Oh Lord I’m sorry ’bout the Marx and the Lenin
All these bets I’ve been hedgin’
But can’t you see I’m beggin’
And let another one in?
Please let another one in
Yes another one in
Please let me in.
