A Fundamentalist Christian’s Ode to Long Dresses

Take the song “‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus,” replace the lyrics with lines about how great it is to dress modestly, and you have a fundie anthem (with a very loud piano):

Here are the lyrics, courtesy of a commenter at Stuff Fundies Like:

‘Tis so sweet to wear long dresses
They always come well past my knee
The Bible teaches me to be modest
So that is what I want to be

Dresses, dresses oh long dresses
Let them come right to the floor
Dresses, dresses oh long dresses
Let me wear them more and more

‘Tis so sweet to keep it holy
Dress your best for God on high
Wordly clothes are of the devil
It’s too short if you see thigh.

‘Tis so sweet to ask the Spirit
What is wrong and what is right
He’ll always show you what is modest
Never pants or shorts or clothing tight.

Dresses, dresses, oh long dresses
Let them come right to the floor
Dresses, dresses oh long dresses
Let me wear them more and more.

Dresses, dresses oh long dresses
Let us wear them more and more.

Is it parody? It may be. The song is tagged as “comedy” by its uploader. Plus, you occasionally see sly smiles from the singer…
