remembering the blessing

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

Job

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.
