Rational Thought - An Atheist Hymn by Heather Spoonheim
(Sung to the tune of Amazing Grace)

Rational Thought, how pow-er-ful
That saved an ape like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind, but now I see

T'was Thought that freed my mind from fear
Free Thought, just so relieving
How precious did my own thoughts appear
The hour I stopped believing

Though indoctrinated at an early age
Told of horrors to come
Twas free Thought that I did engage
To find my own way back home

A rational mind is all I need
And all that it secures
It will my shield and my portion be
As long as it endures

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail
And mortal life shall cease
All prayers will be to no avail
In death I shall be at peace

When mankind sheds these bronze age fears
And of priests there shall be none
We'll view our ways and praise the days
When our secular world had begun

Rational Thought, how pow-er-ful
That saved an ape like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind, but now I see

Stupid song.  

I think instrumentals stick better because the writers concentrated only on the music and didn't have to make it fit with lyrics. So we get a piece of music that, if it's what was intended, grabs us and won't let go.
