Still seeking Biblical songs? Start at the very beginning, and teach the audience (the campers, the Girl Scout Troop, the Sunday School Class) their part first.

DEM BONES (GONNA RISE AGAIN)

The Lord He thought He'd make a man
(Dem bones gonna rise again)
Took a little water and he took a little sand
(Dem bones gonna rise again)

CHO: I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it sister
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones gonna rise again

Now Adam he was lonely & blue (Dem bones, etc.)
Asked the Lord what he could do (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

Took a rib from Adam's side (Dem bones, etc.)
Made Miss Eve to be his bride (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

Put them in a garden fair (Dem bones, etc.)
Thought they'd be most happy there (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

Apples, peaches, pears and such (Dem bones, etc.)
But of this tree you must not touch (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

Now Eve took a walk by the tree one day (Dem bones, etc.)
And a serpent popped up in her way (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

"Now, Eve, this fruit tastes mighty fine" (Dem bones, etc.)
"Just take one, the Lord won't mind" (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

Eve took a pick and she took a pull (Dem bones, etc.)
And then she filled her apron full (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

Next day when the Lord came 'round (Dem bones, etc.)
Saw them cores all over the ground (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

Now Adam and Eve they tried to hide (Dem bones, etc.)
But the Lord looked down, and them he spied (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

Asked "Adam, who these cores did leave?" (Dem bones, etc.)
'Tweren't me, Lord. Guess it was Eve! (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

"Now Adam you must leave this place." (Dem bones, etc.)
"And earn your livin' by the sweat of your face." (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.

So he took a pick and he took a plow (Dem bones, etc.)
And that's why we're all workin' now! (Dem bones, etc.) CHO.
