It begins in Genesis with a bit of a run to Exodus
You wanna see some of the laws in Leviticus
And the way the camp gets sorted in Numbers – divine!
Deuteronomy leads into Joshua, great guy, made mistakes
But those Judges what could I say, so bad
And then when you think what a terrible human race
We get to meet Boaz, Naomi and Ruth – what a girl.
The one twos come next. Samuel, Kings and Chronicles
Amazing stories of bold kings and prophets as you do.
Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther tell their stories next
Which leads up to the guy with the mostest who loses it all
Epic songs and poems with Psalms and wisdom
Oh so very, very wise.
Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs
Followed by some goodies
Isaiah and Jeremiah
Stand up those who love a good lament!
Cos Lamentations is next with Ezekiel bringing clouds.
Daniel, those dreams – wow man! What were you on!
But seriously thank you, the imagery is the bomb
Hosea, you gotta do what he says and
You held your head high as you showed us – all means all
Joel, not Billy tells us loads of restoration and blessings
Amos, not Brierley and Obadiah plumb lines and warnings
Jonah – don’t we all be a bit like Jonah running away
The social justice of Micah and the short Nahum
Who would want to live in Ninevah with his vision
Bring us to the H – Z’s
Habbakuk, Zephaniah, Haggai and Zechariah
With Malachi bringing up the rear with tales of judgement,
To restore His people and to bless them all day long.
