Psalms Come True
Parody of "Song Sung Blue" by Neil Diamond
(Psalms 30:5, 37:4)

Psalms come true -- in the Bible, those ones
Psalms come true they're from God to grow from
Read 'em through their subjects include
The blues now and then
But when you take your blues and praise your God
He'll bring you out of them
You'll sing and shout again

Psalms come true -- weepin' lasts a little
Psalms come true -- sleep it off now, kiddo
Funny thing a shepherd king who killed a giant as a boy
Ain't the sort of poet that you'd feel was good
Except when God's the source

LEAD

Read 'em through it's not just you
With blues now and then
But when you take your blues and praise your God
Then things work out again
You'll sing and shout again

Psalms (psalms) come (come) true (true)
Weepin' lasts a little
Psalms (psalms) come (come) true (true)
Sleep it off now, kiddo
Funny thing a shepherd king who killed a giant as a boy
Ain't the sort of poet that you'd feel was good
Except when God's the source

Psalms (psalms) come (come) true (true)
Psalms (psalms) come (come) true (true)

Psalm 30:5
For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime;
Weeping may last for the night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning.
