Rock on Baby Jesus
Disclaimer: I don't intend these lyrics to offend or inspire, they are simply an exercise in writing in various styles. Criticize and comment, but please do not consider them a reflection of my personal beliefs or prejudices.

This is still in the works, I'm working with something of a swinging old-timey blues, any input welcome.

Rock on baby jesus
Rock on baby Jesus
Rock on baby jesus
Daddy loves rock and roll

Jesus picked up that six string
And the band began to play
Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not steal
Just rock them blues away
Somethin's gonna shake this land
From Nazareth to Galilee
Got 30 good years to preach them blues
An' they'll nail you up on the tallest tree

Rock on baby jesus
Rock on baby Jesus
Rock on baby jesus
Daddy loves rock and roll
 
Jesus picked up that six string
And the crowd began to swing
With Peter on the keys
Paul on drums
And Mary on the tambourine
They played boogie woogie music all night long
And the people came to see
That travelin' band from Bethleh'am
They'll save your soul an' set you free

Rock on baby jesus
Rock on baby Jesus
Rock on baby jesus
Daddy loves rock and roll

These lyrics gave me a very "country" feel to it, rather than Rock N' Roll... I don't know if that was intended, haha. Sorry if I didn't perceive it the way you wrote it!

The verses are very creative - maybe you could teach this to kids in Sunday school or something? Hahaha...

Good stuff, waiting for the recording.

For those curious as to what I wanted this to sound like, here's a rough idea:
