Flying Spaghetti Monster Hymn #1

I am a born-again Pastafarian. Flying Spaghetti Monsterism is a true religion, a fine religion, a soothing answer to all life's big questions, and an excellent excuse to wear my pirate regalia, and yet...there was still a void in my life. A lack. Something was missing in FSM, something other religions have, something of great importance that prevented me from fully appreciating the way of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Finally I realized: music! FSMism had no liturgical music. No hymns, no songs!

I had to write some.

And now I have. As far as I know, this is the first available hymn for the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It may be performed either in full chorus or as a traditional call-response. The text is as follows:

Flying Spaghetti Monster Hymn #1

Who created the heaven and earth?
Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Who created the mountain and the midget?
Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Have you been touched by His Noodly Appendage?

Found this old camp song, please include it in the hymn book:

On top of spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball,
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table,
And on to the floor,
And then my poor meatball,
Rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden,
And under a bush,
And then my poor meatball,
Was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty
As tasty could be,
And then the next summer,
It grew into a tree.

The tree was all covered,
All covered with moss,
And on it grew meatballs,
And tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball,
Whenever you sneeze
