What a rich treasure the Hebrew scriptures provide!

Chorus: Something amazing is coming,
A great surprise is on the way,
Open your heart to receive a miracle today.
1. A woman of means welcomed Elisha,
She set up a room for him to stay,
Bed and table, lamp and good food,
For whenever he would pass that way.
2. Now what could Elisha give her as a present
For all of the kindness she had shown,
Maybe speak on her behalf
To the army or king on the throne.
3. Elisha called the woman, she stood in the doorway,
"Next year at this time you''ll have a son,"
"You''re a man of God, don''t lie to me,"
After a few months she was the pregnant one.
4. In fields at harvest time, boy''s head was aching,
They carried him to his mom, and he died,
She took a donkey to find Elisha,
Made him come home with her by her side.
5. Elisha''s servant laid a stick on the boy''s face,
The boy didn''t move, just lay there "dead",
Until Elisha stretched out on the boy,
Who sneezed and jumped right off his bed. (Repeat Chorus)
Vocals: Diane. Keyboard: Judy.
2 Kings 4:8-37. What signs of strength does this woman show? How is hospitality a sign of grace? Have you or has someone you know had a "near death" experience?
ABIGAIL, I PRAISE THE LORD FOR SENDING YOU
1. Nabal: his name means fool.
He repaid David evil for good.
He gave to David and his men insults,
Instead of the food that he should.
2. David became angry.
He gathered up his army to kill.
Nabal''s wife, Abigail, said to David,
"Such revenge would not be God''s will."
Chorus: And David said,
"Abigail, I praise the Lord for sending you.
May you be blessed in all you do.
You helped me to understand
I should not avenge myself with my own hand.
You kept me from bloodshed this day.
Your wisdom has shown me God''s way."
3. Nabal: his heart failed him.
He became like a stone and soon died.
Abigail was sent for by King David.
She joyfully became his bride. (Repeat Chorus)
Vocals: Diane. Keyboard: Judy.
1 Samuel 25:4-40 What had David''s men done to help Nabal? When Nabal insulted David, what was David''s response? How did Abigail get David to change his mind? What happened to Abigail in verse 40? Have you ever helped to settle a dispute?
