On the first day of creation the good Lord gave to me,
His light, so we all could see

 

On the second day of creation the good Lord gave to me,
The sky up above
And His light, so we all could see

 

On the third day of creation the good Lord gave to me,
Land, sea and plants
The sky up above
And His light, so we all could see

 

On the fourth day of creation the good Lord gave to me,
Sun, moon and stars
Land, sea and plants
The sky up above
And His light, so we all could see

 

On the fifth day of creation the good Lord gave to me,
Fish and birds a-plenty
Sun, moon and stars
Land, sea and plants
The sky up above
And His light, so we all could see

 

On the sixth day of creation the good Lord gave to me,
Animals and people
Fish and birds a-plenty
Sun, moon and stars
Land, sea and plants
The sky up above
And His light, so we all could see

 

On the seventh day of creation the good Lord gave to me,
A day to rest and praise Him
Animals and people
Fish and birds a-plenty
Sun, moon and stars
Land, sea and plants
The sky up above
And His light, so we all could see
