This book today is a mystery
Known by all too few;
Gone are the days when it could be assumed
That its contents people knew.
Noah perchance, with his two by two
And the original rainbow theme;
Might spark recognition for some out there,
But they still won’t know – what it does mean.
The names of Elijah or Obadiah, will be met with empty stares.
They will claim it has nothing to do with them.
Has nothing to do with their cares.
And so I walk the lonely road,
As theology I dare to teach.
And I pray every day – that by God’s grace
At least some of them – I will reach.
