Let There Be Chant on Earth

From the mind of Pes, one of the learned and gentlemanly combox folks at The New Liturgical Movement, comes the ultimate revenge on one of the worst hymns ever written, which I like to call "The Icerink Song" for reasons which I think are sufficiently clear.

Let there be chant on earth,
and let it begin with me.
Let there be chanted Mass,
the Mass that was meant to be.

With God as our Father,
singers all are we,
Let me chant with my brothers,
at every liturgy.

To pray each moment and sing each moment
in pure monophony...
Let there be chant on Earth,
and let it begin with me!
