|#1||I am different from any creation in the world because while I was made and owned of a man, I once had God inside. Even though I am unique, I am not one of a kind because you find ones similar to me all through the pages of the Bible. As a matter of fact, every woman used us and all but a couple men. One man from the Old Testament and one from the New even used us twice. I am quite popular as songs have been written concerning me, I am celebrated every year, and have even been visited by angels. You can find my story in the gospels. Do you know me?|
|#2||I donít walk, crawl, or run I only can fly I once helped out a prophet As I parted the sky; Iím a creation of God Rarely seen by the eye; Iíll never get sick, Suffer, or die; Iím just a bright flash As I travel along; Itís possible you heard my name in a movie Or even in a song; Youíll find me among Kings, So away you should go To the best Book that you own, And then my name you can know. Who am I?|
|#3||On the Printed Page I surely stand tall, By my side my people thought They would never fall, Iíve kept my people From the enemyís hand And given them a safe, secure, And peaceful land Iíve protected my people Both day and night However, I never really Joined in the fight Iíve seen friend and foe And harlots and spies Iíve heard trumpets and shouts And even some lies Upon my demise I didnít go to hell Nor did I go to heaven And one thing that caught my attention Was the number seven From that day forward My people were never the same But can you search the Old Testament And tell me my name?|
|#4||I was first in line And then there was another You may not know me But you surely know my brother My appearance was grand And I stood real tall But at the words of the prophet I felt real small I was in a battle for my country But fear had me in its grip So I didnít take the challenge Because I knew I would get whipped Now even though I say this You will not believe itís true But my daughter even married My great-nephew I know that sounds strange But even his people did part I guess I should have listenedó What really matters is the heart.|
|#5||My master picked me up With his great hand And used me one day According to Godís great plan He escaped the mighty enemy But beat them all first And then called on the Lord Because he had a great thirst Well then I gave him drink Which helped him revive Of course the enemy was sad That God kept him alive The next passage you read He sinned against God But before long you see More enemies he trod My master you know well But now we shall see If you can go to your Bible And give my name to me.|
|#6||I labored hard For the prophet one day We were making a house Or at least a place to stay We were chopping some wood But I stopped real quick I went and hid But was found with a stick Iím sorry about this Because the work I did hinder My favorite verse is ďThe borrower is servant to the lender.Ē|
|#7||Iíve seen king and prophet
And Shunammite And one of the times It involved a great big light It involved water and people
And a whole lot of noise An altar was made
But later destroyed One time involved a chariot Rain, and seven times Which all got started Because of a kingís great crime One time involved a servant, a sonís death,
And a womanís great plea In these stories many were present But as Godís creation I was at all three.
|#8||I was a beautiful young virgin
If you really must know And I entered the biblical page
In a great royal show I faced heartache and turmoil And a whole lot of strife And I once had a secret That later saved my life I even faced possible death From the king of the land But I knew I was safe When he stretched out his hand I also faced fear
But I trusted the Lord And the enemy I faced Was defeated with a cord Some today who face trouble Believe life is so empty But I know life is full of purpose Because God had a plan for me.
|#9||On the Bible page youíll find me
Full of deceit and lies My sister I will say I loved
But my brother I despised I tried to overthrow the government For authority I did not respect And when my neighbor didnít listen His field I did wreck My father did love me And he loved me till the end But even my fatherís love Would not keep me from my sin Oh, I was beautiful And full of pride you might say But when it came time to die I died a most unusual way.
|#10||I entered the Bible
In a most unusual way I came to a ruler by surprise On a very special day
This ruler was arrogant And also very proud I didnít even speak to him
So I wasnít very loud He used that which belonged to God In a way that showed that he was vile And at just the sight of me His fear I did rile My messed he did not understand Though he tried with all his might And just to throw you a bit I never learned to write.
|#11||I was a giant in my country and people bowed to me And if for some reason they didn't their life would no longer be My king was mighty powerful God's people he did attack And even with their history of war they could not push him back Of course I'm in the Bible and I know that doesn't mean I'm right But there upon the Bible pages you will even find my height I was extremely valuable and before great people I did appear Musicians stood all around but their music I did not hear And what I'm about to tell you I want you to know it is no joke That even with people all around words I never spoke.|
|#12||I once was lost
but now I am found And for some time I wasn't around I was taken to a ruler
and upon hearing my words He became very humble because of what he heard
Well, he tore his clothes and then sought his Lord Revival swept the land
and became part of the written record And in a way you might say I even saved his life Because I kept him from the evil that brought his people heartache and strife.
|#13||I was there in the story when Jesus fell asleep at sea I was there when Jesus told James & John to "Follow Me" I was there when Jesus spake the parables to the multitude I was there when Jesus rebuked the wind and sea and changed their attitude I was there when Peter walked on the water and ended up wet I was there when the fish broke the disciples' net In all these stories you will find me there But I am not a human I do solemly declare.|
|#14||I was a powerful man who could not be beat Whenever I fought the enemy I would sweep him off his feet As I looked at my city I knew it was no dump And while I considered myself a tree God made me into a stump My residence was changed and I had to live off the land But when I looked unto God only then did I understand.|
|#15||A man of God and a man of the devil Decided one day their enemy they would level When they asked for my help I was told what to say But I looked at that man and said, "There's no way! To the Lord Jehovah I must be true." But when my answer they heard the king felt a little blue An order was given I was also slapped on the cheek The Lord's word he did not follow but the way of false prophets he did seek I was put into prison and affection was my bread But when the king entered the battle he ended up dead.|
|#16||My arrival I know
it surely was planned People waited for me throughout the land Some were prepared
and others were not And when I arrived the king surely got hot
The promise of my arrival it was not a dud Because there was not a single house withouth the shedding of blood If people believed they would be prepared And many a life could have surely been spared.
|#17||I was full of good works a lot I did do When you meet me in the Bible my friends look real blue Two men were sent to someone you know And as he received the message away he did go I had already been washed and put into bed So they showed him my work and to me he sped He spoke to me and his words were so wise But when my friends saw me they couldn't believe their eyes.|
|#18||I am the greatest of all you are nothing without me I rejoice in truth and not in iniquity I have never been jealous and I've never been proud And when I speak to you it is never real loud I don't seek my own way I always look to another And I care so much for your sister and brother I carry hope and endurance wherever I trod And in case you are wondering I am not God!|
|#19||On the pages of Scripture I am commended But my one true love I offended I labored for him and did not faint I was also patient just like a saint I found the liars and wrong deeds made me heave But repentance I needed because my love I did leave.|
|#20||I had a friend who was thrown in jail What his name was I shall not tell He died right there and it's really sad Because my family was to blame which makes me look bad He spoke God's Word whenever he had the chance But he lost his life after a supper and a dance.|
|#21||I was not too big And I was not too small And not many listened When the Lord did call I was the one Who kept Godís people safe When judgment came down In a most unusual way You see me a short while And not much more And God didnít really use me Until He shut a door Iíve seen many a creature And many a man But for much of the time I was not upon the land And apart from me Everybody died And in case you are wondering I was never really alive.|
|#22||I was a great success With war and might But I did an awful thing That just wasnít right You learn of me When I am sixteen And I prospered a lot While a prophet was on the scene I built towers and wells And had cattle to boot And those around Even gave me some loot My army was equipped And made me real strong And I did real well Until temptation came along When I stood where I shouldnít Others told me to leave But when I didnít listen A deadly disease I did receive.|
|#23||I was full of faith
And a man of power I was Godís chosen spokesman For the hour
I spoke with wisdom No one could refute But my words ended With a great dispute
Men didnít listen Because there were not of God Upon His word These men did trod They lied about me And stirred up men All because they accused me Of some great sin But at least they heard Of Godís great grace And they could even see it
As they looked upon my face.

|#26||The servant couldnít see
His eyes were closed But we stood around While danger was posed But Godís man looked on
And did not fear He commanded the enemy
And to their enemy did steer He prevailed that day As we stood by But we didnít hurt a one And thatís no lie.

|#30||My father took a vow
One day in a battle That he would give to God (he probably thought of sheep or cattle)
A burnt offering he would give If God answered his prayer But when he returned home
He didnít expect to find me standing there My father was honest And you will know that is true
When you look at his words To see what he must do It caused a lot of pain
And he tore his clothes And I bet he even cried Every morning when he arose
And if you read my story Iím sure you will agree
I am the most obedient daughter That you will ever see.

|#35||I was a man of God But my children rebelled I served the Lord But my children failed I spoke to them But they would not give heed They continued in their sin And in their wicked deed I should have taken a stand And dealt with their sin Because then we wouldnít have ended up In the mess we were in But God brought another Along my way Who I greatly loved And showed the right way I grew real old I surely will admit And the last time you saw me I couldnít even sit.|
