|The great Jehovah speaks to us|
In Genesis and Exodus;
Leviticus and Numbers see,
Followed by Deuteronomy.
Joshuah and Judges sweep the land,
Ruth gleans a sheaf with trembling hand;
Samuel(x2) and numerous Kings(x2) appear,
Whose Chronicles(x2) we wondering hear.
Ezra and Nehemiah now,
Esther the beauteous mourner show,
Job speak in sighs, David in Psalms,
The Proverbs teach to scatter alms.
Ecclesiastes then comes on,
And the sweet Song of Solomon.
Isiah, Jeremiah then
With Lamentations takes his pen.
Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea's lyres,
Swell Joel, Amos, Obadiah's.
Next Jonah, Micah, Nahum come,
And lofty Habbakuk finds room.
While Zephaniah, Haggai calls,
Rapt Zechariah builds his walls,
And Malachi, with garments rent,
Concludes the ancient testament.
