Tell the Story Well ( a lyrical poem of inspiration)

Updated on January 10, 2015
We shall tell it on the mountain...
We shall tell it on the mountain...
about a time so long ago...
about a time so long ago...
About our savior born and many to scorn...
About our savior born and many to scorn...
yet for him, we are saved, to this day...
yet for him, we are saved, to this day...
Born in a humble stable in Bethlehem,
Born in a humble stable in Bethlehem,
It is he that has shown the way...
It is he that has shown the way...
A bright light shown on the stable then...
A bright light shown on the stable then...
In such splendor all did begin..
In such splendor all did begin..
An explosion of hope did grace this earth...
An explosion of hope did grace this earth...
as we were led by the hands of our Lord...
as we were led by the hands of our Lord...
He gave up his life to rid our strife...
He gave up his life to rid our strife...
for us to live in such accord...
for us to live in such accord...
As storms of life may come and go,
As storms of life may come and go,
By his grace, we all afford...
By his grace, we all afford...
Purveyor of hope...
Purveyor of hope...
So broad in scope...
So broad in scope...


High up over the rocky faced mountain's fine tops,

Lying so far beyond the fond Valley of the Sun,

There is a celestial plain, and is ours to all gain,

When our new lives, then shall have begun.


There once stood a man with such a grand plan,

Told to him there, and that in his great trust,

A relief of all retribution, proposed, and forever,

Will be for his people to follow, for this, they must.


Moses, oh holy Moses, we're told of this story, so well,

in these words, this to be heard, like the ringing of a bell.


He led his people out of Egypt, in a time so very long ago,

The pharaoh, had to release them, ours, this to know.

Amid the awful plagues, and red blood raining there,

Was too much suffering and pain, for them all to bare.


The Lord God sent his manna, for all of his people to save,

A great sense of love and caring shown, this he gladly gave.

When the people fell before sin, burdens, too heavy to hold,

A forgiveness he gave, them to save, a wonderful story told.


Moses, oh holy Moses, we're told of this story, so well,

In these words, this to be heard, like the ringing of a bell.


Over time, and then when the people's sins were so great,

The Lord God sent his angel of death, this as their fate,

By the protection of lamb's blood on the good's every door,

Those living in such sin, were to sin again, no more.


The Lord God, in his infinite wisdom, with caring, then so chose,

Would decide to send his only own son, to be the savior of those.

Jesus came on an earthly plain, as the baby of Mary and Joseph,

He lived the life of a carpenter's son, the first time on Earth, he arose.


Moses, oh holy Moses, we're told of this story so well,

In these words, this to be heard, like the ringing of a bell.


Jesus performed great miracles, as healing the lame, and the blind,

Turning water into fine wine and feeding the many, on so little to dine.

He preached to all his people, giving them much hope and a new life,

He gave of himself, such a grand wealth, a freedom from such strife.


Falsely accused and exchanged for a thief, a Roman leader to proclaim,

Then sentenced to death, to die on a cross, as evidence of great shame.

The shame of the Romans, the Sanhedrin, Yet the Savior, never to blame,

With the Lord's death and resurrection, to justify, in the reason he came!


Placed in a tomb, of rocks so hewn, then guarded by soldiers, without a friend,

The Lord Jesus arose on the third day, as witnessed by his disciples and kin,

Joined his family next to God, his heavenly Father, to reign on high, once again,

Now as we each call upon our Father, in our prayers, we are freed from all sin.


Moses, oh holy Moses. we're told of this story so well,

In these words, this to be heard, like the ringing of a bell.


The Lord Jesus came, and accepted great blame,

Washed away the sins of all man.

Just to ask this, each must, and in him to trust,

As all a part of his Grand plan.


Wise Moses, a faithful servant, chosen by our God,

The purveyor of all hope, so broad in its scope.

Preparing for the time, our Father's last meal, by its creation,

Does Signify the saving of all human kind, in our celebration.

      You tell the story well and make it interesting. I'm wondering why you didn't mention Abraham, but I love it as it is.

      Whonu, if the nuns had taught the bible this way in religion class, I think I would have paid better attention. This is just beautiful!
