The Ten Commandments

A long while back, At a Hen's Pace requested that I post our ten commandments song. So finally, here it is (though not the podcast. We got the kids to sing it, but they were shy and whispering into the little recorder thing. We'll try again at some point but it will take some practice).

To the old 70's tune 'I'd like to buy the world a home' or better known 'I'd like to buy the world a coke' or, as I originally learned it 'Amazing Grace'

Here's our words (don't go to the chorus until the very end).

The Lord your God the Lord is One
And you shall have no others
You shall not make any idols
Or misuse God's name.
You shall keep the sabbath holy
And honor your mommy and daddy
You shall not ever kill
And you shall always be faithful
You shall not ever steal
Or tell a lie
You shall not be envious of your neighbors Stuff!

chorus:
It's the real thing.
If you're looking for love.
God's gift from above.
It's the real thing.

Oh, thank you!!

I'm trying to remember the whole tune, and YouTube is doing site maintenance--which lines, besides the first one, are to the tune of "I'd like to buy the world a coke"?

I hope You Tube comes back up soon. The whole thing is to that tune, we just keep repeating the verse tune over until the end of the commandments and then sing the chorus, but you could put it in where it goes by tune.

Hi, I'm back! Saw the YouTube, and the tune IS as I remembered it. But this time when I tried to sing it, I got the words to fit!

Thanks again!
