Job 1:21

Job 1:21

Wrote this song yesterday (Thursday, 8.05.16) and just wanted to share it with you tonight.

Never been much of a bible scholar, but let’s see if I got this bit right…

JOB 1:21

21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. (KJV)

Oh, the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away

and all men are pagans in the blessed light of day

naked I came from my mama’s womb and naked I’ll return

and naked I’ll lay you down and make your sweet love burn

For the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away

and all men are beggars when a woman’s got her say

naked I came from my mama’s womb and naked I’ll return

and naked you swallow me, tongue-tied and taciturn

For the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away

and all men seek magic when the moon is in full sway

naked I came from my mama’s womb and naked I’ll return

and naked we share that last piece for which we yearn

Oh, the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away

and all men are sinners when it comes to Judgement Day

naked I came from my mama’s womb and naked I’ll return

and naked I’ll be turned to ash and so this life adjourn

For the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away

all men are pagans in the blessed light of day
