The fiery finger of GOD wrote The Law
in the tablets of stone,
And once a year the blood of a goat
did for their sin atone.

That Old Covenant they had was for
the purpose of teaching a lesson,
and now we have a better deal,
'cause the blood is real,
and we're no longer guessin'!

The gentle finger of Jesus wrote the
Law of Love in the dust on the ground.
His forgiveness of the woman adulteress
was an act of this truth so profound.

He was the one who became the goat for us,
and also the ram in the thicket..
He is the Lamb that covers our sin,
and gives righteousness to the wicked.

The literal truth comes first,
and leads to the abstract truth of the poet,
And the things recorded in His Book
have a deeper meaning: Don't you know it?

It may not be just what you think,
because the language was once confounded,
But it will surely enlighten your eyes,
if your brain hasn't been impounded. :winking0071:

:prophet:"Let my people go", says God, but Satan hangs on tight,
and the people who are steeped in sin don't know to do what's right.
Come hell or high-calamity, come sickness or disease
The people just go right ahead doing what they please.

Sometimes they vow and plead with God, :bawl:
when things get really rough,
but when they're on their feet again
They say "Of church I've had enough".

"Let my People Go", says God, "So they can worship me"
So they can sing and praise with joy, and live in harmony
So they won't lie or cheat or steal -- they'll give up harmful habits
and teach their children not to go around behaving just like rabbits".

"Let my People Go", says God, but Satan won't let go
and the leaders of this people want to keep the status-quo
They think they're oh so very smart, and know-it-all's besides
But just as soon as God gets back, he's going to tan their hides! :lol:
