Dreams from Job

The Lord giveth
Yes He does
He gives and gives
From up above
Yet none remembers
The breaths and hours
The food and shelter
And providing powers
We all remain constant
In complacent sloth
While the Lord keeps giving
From above

The Lord giveth and
Yet He ‘and’s
He ‘and’s and He ‘and’s
And He ‘and’s some more
He is God, He is King
He can do what He wants
The Lord can give
And He can ‘and’ to the end
Of the end of time’s
Gift. The Lord can
‘and’ when He gives

He Gives
And Takes
He takes
He rakes
And takes
And reaps the earth
Soaking the world
And his garmenst in blood
The tears of Rachel
Still ring in His ears
He takes as He gives and
Gives as He takes
And ‘and’s as He ‘and’s
For the Lord is great

The Lord gives and the Lord takes away
The Lord has given and the Lord took it back
The Lord will give and the Lord will take
And at the end of the day
I will bow and say
Through tears of pain and joy
Blessed be His Name
