"That Israelite's a fool!" --
That's what stubborn Pharaoh thought,
When Moses heeded God's command
And lifted up that rod.
And when out in the desert
The people longed for food,
He told them God would supply it;
But they too thought him a fool.
When Joshua told the people
To march around the town
And blow the trumpets like God said,
Some thought his mind unsound.
Yes, to others we may seem silly
When we obey God's wise commands.
But if we do, He'll see us through --
All the way to the Promised Land.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice
indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye
shall be a peculiar treasure unto me
above all people: for all the earth is mine.
