Songwriter:
A. Call & J. Keller


J's Journal:
This is the story of Abraham and Isaac from Genesis 22. Verse 2 sets the scene: "Then God said, 'Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about.'" This song picks it up from there. "Genny 22" and "Meshach" were both rescued from the garbage heap by my wife, Lisa, and Keith's wife, Krista. I had the choruses and the first several lines written for both songs, and I shared them with the band while Lisa and Krista were there. I had hit a brick wall in both songs and was ready to trash them, but the ladies wouldn't let me.

Genny 22
Parody of "867-5309/Jenny" by Tommy Tutone
(Genesis 22)

Genesis twenty-two's where I turn to
To get the story of Isaac no one knew
I know you think Ike's life was prob'ly a bore
Because his famous father loved the Lord
When he was lots more younger Isaac was saved in time
When the Lord told His father
Abraham sacrifice Me your child
Take sticks sacrifice Me your child
Abraham sacrifice Me your child
Isaac sacrificed, me oh my
Daddy, daddy that's a grill for meat
And you won't tell me why today we don't have sheep
I tried to tell you before but I lost my nerve
I tried to find another way son but I trust His Word
Daddy, I'm on the lumber why did you take your knife
There is an angel up there
Abraham, I'm satisfied, free your child
Your faith has satisfied me all right
Abraham, I'm satisfied, free your child
Your faith has satisfied me all right
Hey, Daddy! Hey, Daddy!
We've got a lamb there after all
Hey, Daddy! Hey, Daddy!
When you get time lets have a good long talk!
LEAD
When your begotten sons there
How can you take his life?
Yet we know God the Father
Made this sacrifice with Jesus Christ
Genny 22s where I turn to
God saved Isaac in time and we all must learn the truth
(To make it to Heaven find Jesus Christ)
Find Jesus Christ! Find Jesus Christ!
