Track 4 from Catechism Cataclysm: A Musical by Jay Beech & Dave Eliason


Is your confirmation class more like a Catechism Cataclysm? This 50 minute rock musical chronicles the adventures of one such class struggling with their memory work. They need to pass the big exam in order to go on the canoe trip. The most unique feature of this work is that composers Jay Beech and Dave Eliason have set several sections of Luther's Small Catechism to music. This resource can be done as a stage production, but the recording is is also widely used as a learning tool.


The text of this song is an adaptation of Martin Luther's explanation of the first article of the Apostles' Creed. An alternate title might be “Body and Soul,” as these words are repeated through the chorus of this soulful number.
