The Camel train Song

I first heard this song at a church camp in Washington..
The Carl Anderson youth Ranch.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Camel Train

Twas a day in early springtime,
By an ancient wayside well,
Eliezer paused to rest his camel train
He had found a bride for Isaac
Ere the evening shadows fell oh it must have been a happy wedding day!

For his weary journey had not been in vain.

Oh, get ready!
Evening shadows fall.
Don’t you hear the Eliezer call?
There’s going to be a wedding,
And our joy will soon begin,
In the evening when the camel train comes in.

So he took the fair Rebecca,
Dressed in jewels rich and rare,
to her bridegroom far away

Oh, get ready!
Evening shadows fall.
Don’t you hear the Eliezer call?
There’s going to be a wedding,
And our joy will soon begin,
In the evening when the camel train comes in.

Where Rebecca loved her Isaac,
And he loved Rebecca fair;
Oh, it must have been a happy wedding day.
Now the blessed Holy Spirit, from our Father God above,
has come down to earth to find a worthy Bride.
For our Isaac over yonder has prepared His tents of love,
And He wants His fair Rebecca by His side.

We have left our kinfolk gladly; we have bade the world goodbye.
Wev’e been called to be His precious precious Bride;
Where we’ll soon behold our Jesus In that blest eternity
What a happy, happy wedding that will be!

Hansel P. Vibbert was the writer of this song, originally called The Camel Train. Brother Vibbert is now with Jesus. The message in it has become the theme of our ministry, The Eliezer Call.
