We learned about Judges
We learned about Ruth
And nasty stuff Israel did in her youth
These books in the Bible
They teach us the truth
That God is the one we should follow!
In Judges we saw how they followed themselves!
Ignoring the law Moses put on their shelves!
And deep into misery our story delves
A lesson in who we should follow!
The horrors of Judges, they show us the thing
That Israel needs is a good, godly king!
And Ruth is a tiny book you can read fast
That points to the king that is coming at last!
I’ll shout it with all of my breath!
A king who can save us from sin and from death!
The seeds have been planted – we know it’s the truth –
Way back in the Bible – with Boaz and Ruth!
