Fun Fridays – July 27, 2018

The original “Cup” song done by Rich Mullins in 1987.

(Some think the original is Anna Kendrick’s “Cup”…the below is video proof otherwise.)

Lyrics below the video:

A more modern rendition:

“It’s about as useless as a screen door on a submarine
Faith without works baby
It just ain’t happenin’
One is your left hand one is your right
It’ll take two strong arms to hold on tight
Some folks cut off their nose just to spite their face
I think you need some works to show for your alleged faith

Well there’s a difference you know
‘tween having faith and playing make believe
One will make you grow the other one just make you sleep
Talk about it
But I really think you oughtta take a leap off of the ship
Before you claim to walk on water
Faith without works is like a song you can’t sing
It’s about as useless as a screen door on a submarine

    Cue up the Rich Mullins! He was so delightful in concert. He remains one of my favorite artists. So much musical inspiration.

    Interesting. My three granddaughters sing this song in unison with their cups. I wondered where the song originated.
