Lyrics

As promised here are the word to my favourite most hated childrens christian song. I can just imagine Moses humming this tune as he came off Mount Sinai 4,000 years ago.

(to the tune of nick-nack-paddy-whack)

Number one out of ten, God gave rules for women and men...
Do not worship anyone but me, I alone your God will be.


Number two out of ten, God gave rules for women and men...
Don't make idols, images to praise, What you make can't take my place.

Number three out of ten, God gave rules for women and men...
Keep my name a special one, I am God the holy one.

Number four out of ten, God gave rules for women and men...
One day a week you must keep free, Save that day to worship me.

Number five out of ten, God gave rules for women and men...
Show respect, love your mum and dad, This will really make God glad.

Number six out of ten, God gave rules for women and men...
Do not murder anyone or kill, That would be against my will.

Number seven out of ten, God gave rules for women and men...
Live your lives without adultery, That sin breaks up families.

Number eight out of ten, God gave rules for women and men...
Do not steal and take what isn't yours, Pay attention to my laws.

Number nine out of ten, God gave rules for women and men...
Never lie or say what isn't true, I am God. I care for you!

Number ten out of ten, God gave rules for women and men...
Don't be greedy, wanting all you see, Show content, not jealousy.


Remarkably this song has no copywright so you can use it as much as you like. If you know of any other wonderful songs such as this (and the Flintstones one) then I would love to know about them.

Here's the lyrics to a song I couldn't find on the net so I thought I'd put them here. Its by Neil Bennetts and is on the
New Wine 2003 Album.

O perfect love, O perfect sacrifice,
Fountain of life poured out for me,
What heights and depths of heaven’s mercy,
The faithfulness that I believe,
And to whom shall I run,
And in whom shall I hide,
Only You hold the truth I desire,
O perfect love,
My prayer shall ever be,
To be found in Jesus.

O perfect love, O perfect mystery,
You were condemned but I go free,
What truth to know that I can rest upon,
Your perfect love has covered me,
And what can this heart know,
And what can this heart tell,
But of grace that has rescued me,
O perfect love,
My prayer shall ever be,
To be found in Jesus.

O perfect love, forever I shall sing,
Of heaven’s gates flung wide for me,
Where fear of death and tears of hopelessness,
Are swallowed up in victory,
And what praise shall be sung,
Still to the Holy One,
To the Saviour, Redeemer and King,
O perfect love,
My song shall ever be,
‘I am found in Jesus’.

Nick knack paddy whack has always had the mega cringe, headache, sorry migraine inducing quality to it - but when combined with the 10 commandments - it's like a slow death...

I'm quite happy with that first song to be just reading it rather than hearing it early in the morning...
