Sons of Israel

Joseph and his favoured coat

And then the dreams

Through which he’d gloat

 

Down the hole by angered bros

Sold as a slave

To serve Pharaohs

 

Saying “no” to seducing female

Angered pharaoh’s wife

False accusations led to jail

 

Interprets dreams while inside

Growing reputation

Now by Pharaohs side

 

Prince of Egypt and royal place

Hunger brothers came

Before son of Rachel’s face

 

By brothers he’s not recognised

Yet mercy shown

To the worthily despised

 

He pines for his little brother

Of the same dad

But a different mother

 

He must come before y’all go free

Then he thought

“They still don’t know its me”

 

To Egypt then came all his clan

Saved from famine

By gracious plan

 

Evil plot had ten sons of Israel

To kill and trade

But all worked well

 

Messiahs line again preserved

By Egypt’s prince

And food conserved

 

Greater yet a sovereign hand

Cares for His seed

In a foreign land
