Who sang the first song? Who hummed the first tune?
Was it the wind blowing past the silvery moon?
Were the stars making noise as they sparked at night?
Did the sun sing a song as it colored the sky?
Did the waves makes a song as they crashed to the shore?
Or was it the whales?
Or the lions' first ROAR?
Did the first flowers hum as they burst into bloom?
Or was the first song when the thunder went BOOM?
Maybe elephants running load over the ground ...
Or maybe the birds made the first singing sound.
All these guesses we've made are quite good, but they're wrong.
It was God, our Maker, who sang the first song!
When God made the earth, He decided to sing, And He wrote His song into everything.(Continues…)
