Thou Shall Not Make Unto Thee Any Graven Image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth

The Unseen God

Long ago people thought many animals were gods, even their cat
They thought the Sun was a god, and dogs too, can you imagine that
Way back then the real God chose a special people his secrets to tell
They were the Israelites, the people of the nation of Israel

Godís people lived in Egypt and they had been made slaves
Godís people were beaten and made to work all their days
Godís people asked Him to save them and God said yes
God raised up a great leader, a man called Moses

God told Moses you must go to Egyptís King, the Pharaoh
You must tell him of my power and to let my people go
The king will say no and I will have to cause him great pain
He will send you away wishing you had never came

At the end of my wonders, all Israel will know and believe
In the God of their fathers, whose face they have never seen
Moses spoke to Pharaoh and told him all that God had said
As a sign of His power, God turned all the water Blood Red

Then Frogs took over their houses, they were everywhere
The dust turned into lice that got in their hair
Swarms of great big flying bugs filled the air
But Pharaohís heart was so hard, he did not care

So many bad things happened by Godís unseen hand
That Pharaoh finally let Godís children leave Egyptís land
But he changed his mind and chased them right to the sea
With soldiers and horses and swords he would not let them be

Once again God came to their rescue
He parted the sea to let His people through
Godís people were so happy and they sang to God a song
They promised to obey his laws and to do no wrong

God asked, make no animals for gods, not of silver, gold or wood
To do this would make Me angry and that would not be good
For those animals canít help you, they have no power to save
Look to Me, I will protect you and help you be brave

Although they promised to obey, so soon they forgot
And began to do all that they should not
For their god they made themselves a big golden calf
They sang songs to him, they danced and laughed

The unseen God saw them from his seat on high
As he talked to his friend Moses on Mt. Sinai
With great anger he vowed to turn away
From this people because they would not obey

Moses asked God to give them just one more chance
Please do not destroy them, with your sword and your lance
Moses asked the people why have you done this great wrong
You have worshipped a false god with dance and with song

Many people were sorry because they knew all God had done
They thought of the cruel Pharaoh God had saved them from
Yes he has proven himself worthy of our love and our trust
Because The Unseen God has done so much for us.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
