A LIVING FOR JEHOVAH


A LIVING FOR JEHOVAH!

(New lyrics by Jonathan Caswell…Tune is an old railroad work song entitled “PADDY WORKS ON THE RAILWAY,” …one variation!)

 

When Christ was born in Bethlehem

He brought our hope to life again,

Brought our hope to life again,

A-living for Jehovah!

Hallelu and hip-hooray!

Hallelu and hip-hooray!

Hallelu and hip hooray…

A-LIVING FOR JEHOVAH!

(NOTE: each succeeding Chorus repeats the last line of the previous verse)

He met the Elders when past eight

To stay around and set them straight,

Stay around and set them straight…

A-serving his Jehovah!

He showed the Elders when just twelve

He kept the Torah off the shelf,

Kept the Torah off the shelf,

Preparing for Jehovah!

Jesus came to Calvary

To save us all from sinnery,

Save us all from sinnery

By dying for Jehovah!

Christ He came to life again

To resurrect the souls of men,

Resurrect the souls of men

Redeeming for Jehovah!

We too, must go His glorious Way,

It cannot wait another day,

Cannot wait another day…

A-living for Jehovah!
