These Are the Days of Rebekah

"These are the Days of Rebekah" was first published on Stephen Holmes' blog, Shored Fragments, and is a parody of “Days of Elijah” copyright Song Solutions Daybreak, 1996.

These are the days of Rebekah,
Who trusted the word of the Lord.
And these are the days of your servant Deborah,
Who led forth your people in war.

These are the days of Queen Esther,
Who rescued God’s people through faith.
And these are the days of your prophet Huldah,
Who renewed the temple of praise.

Behold God comes, in tongues of rushing flame
Opening daughters’ mouths to prophesy in God’s name.
So lift your voice, sisters of the Christ,
Out of Mary’s womb salvation comes.

These are the days of the women
Who funded the ministry of Christ.
And these are the days of the Magdalene,
Who first preached of resurrected Life.

These are the days of Priscilla,
Who taught male church leaders the truth,
And these are the days of your apostle, Junia,
Before whom Paul was just a youth.

Behold God comes, in tongues of rushing flame
Opening daughters’ mouths to prophesy in God’s name
So lift your voice, sisters of the Christ
Out of Mary’s womb salvation comes!
