Please tell me that story again. The one from the Bible. The one about Daniel and the lions.

Lyrics

Amen, sing about the river Jordan.
Amen, sing about the desert sand.
Amen, I know that if I were born then
I’d be playin’, in the Promised Land.
Verse:
We come here for the stories.
We know them but tell them again.
Please read from the scroll about the kingdoms of old
And the time when God spoke to men.
We’ll try really hard to be quite.
Now tell us how David was crowned.
When you get to the part where the miracles start
We promise we won’t make a sound.

Chorus:
Tell me the story about Daniel one more time,
Tell the tale of how he looked so pale when they told him
of his crime.
Sing the song that the angles sang that kept the claws away.
The song kept Daniel safe and warm and I need that song today.

Suzie says Jonah’s the best one
But how could a man live in there?
Jamie says Samson’s his favorite tale
But that’s cause he’s got long hair
Sometimes we hear about Moses
And how he parted the sea.
Sometimes my mother just looks at my room
And wishes that Moses was me.
Chorus:
Amen, sing about the river Jordan.
Amen, sing about the desert sand.
Amen, I know that if I were born then
I’d be prayin’, I’d be playin’, and I’d be stayin’ in the Promised Land
