lyrics

Yes and there shall come a time
Like the stars in the sky you shall multiply
And I know that you are of untimely age
And your barren wife has a better way

Sarai came to set things right
Threw the husband in the room and then closed her eyes
A servant of the lord came to give her womb
A servant of the lord has her own mind too

But now that time is moving on Sarai fights it
For the plans of the Lord that were slighted
Have they given you with a house divided?
Does this put you in a hole?
Does your house feel like a home?

Now servant you should run

We find you by the riverside
A servant of the Lord came to ease your mind
He knows you had a long road to find your way
But the fruit of your womb is a horse untamed

For he will set to nothing right
And the works of his hands they shall multiply
A servant of the Lord though you cannot see
A servant of the Lord will you always be

But now that time is moving on Sarai likes it
For the plans of the Lord are decided
That the promise is alive for Isaac
He will come to rule this home
He will come to take his own

Well servant you should run
And take with you your son
For he is

A donkey of a man, who could understand why
He’s laughing his head off
A donkey of a man, still within the plan
Running through the land with his head off
A donkey of a man, Sarai understands why
He’s laughing his head off

Well servant you should run
And take with you your son
Until the day is come

Now we know the time is right
To put you out of mind and out of sight
Servants of the Lord do you now feel true?
Servants of the Lord have a dark mind too

Now you walk the desert line
He will lead you to the well; he will stay your life
Oh mother of a nation you cannot see
The ways of the Lord are a mystery
