The School in Jackson Town

(sung to the tune "The House of the Rising Sun")

There is a school in Jackson town
They call it seminary
And its been the place for many a poor boy
To learn theology.

One teacher was a Taylor,
He taught me how to preach.
Another was a Fowler,
Taught me Greek to exegete.

Then there was Greg Bahnsen:
The first Theonomist.
Some say he was a heretic,
Some say a true Calvinist.

There is so much they taught me,
But some things they never did.
If there is but one true Church,
Then why is her oneness hid?

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
The texts they do seem plain.
Then surely just one body,
Not many, as Protestants claim.

Oh Mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done.
But listen to the Fathers,
Hear them, as they follow the Son.
