Tablets Of Stone
Moses climbed that mountain,
It was the path he trod,
And saw the burning bush atop,
Then spoke direct to God.
He asked a single question,
What had he been called there for,
And God answered in a simple way,
Youíre to take and show my law.
God then said to Moses,
These laws I give to you,
So you can take them to my people,
For them to follow too.
So Moses took those words inscribed,
On those tablets made of stone,
And though there was no man around,
He did not feel alone.
Slowly read those words as written,
And found there were ten laws,
If man just chose to follow them,
To fear he had no cause.
For all of those Commandments,
Were addressed to all mankind,
For what man just had to do,
Was keep them all in mind.
They really werenít so difficult,
For God had made it plain,
That He was God of all creation,
And not to use His name in vain.
Remember then to thank Him,
For all that He had done,
And honour those who bore you,
You were someoneís daughter or a son.
Remember vows of marriage,
And never kill another,
That really isnít much to ask,
Not like Cain had done to brother.
Take nothing that may not be yours,
And please do tell no lies,
Do not request some other things,
Or you might hear anguished cries.
Then God implored to Moses,
Those words do show my plan,
And how I may be recognised,
By my creation known as man.
They may just have been two tablets,
Made of common stone,
But live by the words scribed on them,
And youíll never be alone.
