THE HUBBLE BUBBLE

A PARODY IN 7 MOVEMENTS

Part 5: Shabat

 

 

Refrain
Shabat Shabat, are you waiting for his coming
Like you stand at the train station listen for the humming
Now you wait in the clay on the very wrong day
And you pray and you say now what is on the way
The Shabat is he coming now what is his delay
Or while I wasn’t looking did he fly far away
I was working I was shopping I was following my heart
And Shabat came and went I was just being smart

Refrain – resT:
On the day when you rest on the day of Rest
will it give you the resT will it give you the rest

1.
Surely you’ve heard of the end of creation
God rested after He laid earth’s foundation
Then He spoke and He said on the 7th day rest
It’s the day I have hallowed and blessed

2.
Could it be that the Jews will be found to be correct
Bout a thing mostly all the people sadly neglect
When they rest on Shabat 7th day of the week
While the Christians abolish it in Greek

3.
When Shabat long ago became a sunny day
Day seven people stopping not to rest or to pray
Working crazy, buying selling on God’s holy Day
We don’t care what the Bible say

Refrain – resT:
On the day when you rest on the day of Rest
will it give you the resT will it give you the rest

4.
Yeshua said the Sabbath was made for man
Not the other way around so the Devil’s plan
Was to change the day by a binding decree
So the day of the sun became mandatory

5.
So the Christian world took over the scene
Through an emperor named Constantine
All over the world went this legal news
That Christians could not be Jews

6.
But Shabat wasn’t just for the Jews you see
No the seventh day was for you and for me
When God finished the world and He took a rest
Said the seventh day will be blessed

7.
Now the synagogues have their Shabbes Goy
While the churches never see a Jewish boy
How funny Yeshua our Sabbath true
The son of God was a Jew

8.
Mixing scripture traditions and Kabbalah
The rabbis sing Torah plus bla-bla-bla
Hoping no one comes in with the truth once more
Their traditions to throw out the door

9.
Still the Rabbis are sure that their way is the best
Setting countless rules for the day of rest
They despise the gentiles and their relations
Except for their generous donations

Refrain
Shabat Shabat, are you waiting for his coming
Like you stand at the train station listen for the humming
Now you wait in the clay on the very wrong day
And you pray and you say now what is on the way
The Shabat is he coming now what is his delay
Or while I wasn’t looking did he fly far away
I was working I was shopping I was following my heart
And Shabat came and went I was just being smart

Refrain – resT:
On the day when you rest on the day of Rest
will it give you the resT will it give you the rest

10.
Most other religions with Science included
They do the desperate dance of the deluded
And all running round and round in a restless dream
Until they run out of steam

11.
So you rest or you work in your own little style
And the truth of Creation goes into your junk file
And the beautiful Sabbath which was made for you
Disappears from your point of view

12.
So if you remember where scripture say’s remember
Not Santa Klaus when he comes in December
But the place where it speaks of one day of the week
For us to pray and to rest and seek

13.
The way most people work giving no time to rest
They could say ten 50-hour days a week would be best
With a never-ending work load the funds would increase
Til finally they „Rest in Peace“

Refrain – resT:
On the day when you rest on the day of Rest
will it give you the resT will it give you the rest

14.
I’d personally prefer it the other way around
To work one day a week so how does that sound
Though that way not much would ever get done
And life would be just having fun

15.
So Shabat in this age is one day of the week
For the rich and the poor and the strong and the weak
But the future holds a better greater Sabbath in store
When we won’t have to work anymore

16.
The truth is most people are busy as bees
Never taking the time to get on their knees
To ask our Creator how life ought to be
Both today and for eternity

17.
At least not in the way that we do right now
Since there’ll no longer be any sweat on our brow
Cause Messiah Yeshua has given us His rest
An eternal Shabbat that’s forever blessed

Refrain
Shabat Shabat, are you waiting for his coming
Like you stand at the train station listen for the humming
Now you wait in the clay on the very wrong day
And you pray and you say now what is on the way
The Shabat is he coming now what is his delay
Or while I wasn’t looking did he fly far away
I was working I was shopping I was following my heart
And Shabat came and went I was just being smart

Refrain – resT:
On the day when you rest on the day of Rest
will it give you the resT will it give you the rest
