The Seven Days of Creation

(parody of "The 12 Days of Christmas" by unknown)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: I threw this together to help a lady at church teach creation to her junior-church class of young kids. I never got to teach the hand signs (at the bottom of the page) because I had to play the guitar while I sang, but it's meant to have the hand gestures go along with the song. I confess, this also helps me remember what got created when.


On the first day of creation, the Lord said, "Let there be
The light so that people could see."

On the second day of creation, the Lord said, "Let there be
Heaven up above,
And the light so that people could see."

On the third day of creation, the Lord said, "Let there be
Seas and plants,
Heaven up above,
And the light so that people could see."

On the fourth day of creation, the Lord said, "Let there be
Sun and moon and stars,
Seas and plants,
Heaven up above,
And the light so that people could see."

On the fifth day of creation, the Lord said, "Let there be
Birds and swimming things,
Sun and moon and stars, seas and plants, Heaven up above,
And the light so that people could see."

On the sixth day of creation, the Lord said, "Let there be
Animals and people,
Birds and swimming things,
Sun and moon and stars, seas and plants, Heaven up above,
And the light so that people could see."

On the seventh day of creation, the Lord said, "Let there be
One day of rest,
Animals and people,
Birds and swimming things,
Sun and moon and stars, seas and plants, Heaven up above,
And the light so that people could see."
