Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones

9 Apr

I loved singing this song at camp when I was a kid. Tomorrow the inspiration for this song will appear in our First Reading, Ezekiel 37:1-14

Dry Bones

Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones

Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones

Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones

Now hear the Word of the Lord!

De toe bone connected to the foot bone.
De foot bone connected to the ankle bone.
De ankle bone connected to the shin bone,
De shin bone connected to the knee bone,
De knee bone connected to the thigh bone,
De thigh bone connected to the hip bone,
De hip bone connected to the back bone,
De neck bone connected to the head bone,
Now hear de Word of de Lord.

Dem bones, dem bones, are gunna walk around;
Dem bones, dem bones, are gunna walk around;
Dem bones, dem bones, are gunna walk around;

If the bones are dry, then the life they were once part of is looooooooooog gone! To bring them back to life would take a Miracle to the Tenth Power!

Questions:

What Mega Resurrection Miracle are you praying for right now?

What is so dead it’s ready to turn into a fossil?

Who is ready to believe that fossils– what’s died a l0000000ong time ago– can be brought back to life?

Who is foolish enough to live as if Resurrection is real?

Who will sing the Dem Bones song with me?

For whom will we sing this song?
