The Perfect Ten

The Perfect Ten

By Jamlee

‘Neath a cloud of fire and smoke
The mighty voice of thunder spoke
as God descended to the mountain top

High upon Mt. Sinai
He gave the rules we should live by
as God gave out the “shalts” and “thou shalt nots.”

Number one, we’ve just begin, God should be first in your life
Number two, the idol rule those graven images aren’t nice
Number three, God’s name should be never spoken in jest
Number four, the Sabbath’s for our worship and for rest
Number five, we all should strive to honor Father and Mother

Number six, don’t get your kicks from killing one another
Number seven, life is heaven when you’re true to your mate
Number eight, don’t steal and break these rules for goodness sake
Number nine, don’t be the kind who goes around telling lies
Number ten, don’t covet when you see your neighbor’s house or wife

That’s the list and God insists
we stay away from these sins
That is why we memorize commandments one through ten.

The perfect ten, the perfect ten
They’re just as true as they were way back when

God gave the
The perfect ten, the perfect ten
Let’s sing them once again.

The perfect ten, the perfect ten
God gave the perfect ten

One two three four five six seven eight nine
