A Little Ditty for Genesis 1

(with apologies to Richard Rodgers)
To the tune of "Do, a Deer, a Female Deer"

Let’s start at the very beginning,
a very good place to start.
When you read you begin with "ABC,"
For the world God began with "Let there be,"
Let there be.
The first three words just happen to be, "Let there be,"
Let there be.
Let there be and so it came to be!

Let there be the light and dark,
Let there be the sea and sky,
Let the dry land now appear,
let the green things multiply.

Let there be sun, moon, and stars,
Let them be that swim and fly,
Let them be that walk on land,
let the creatures multiply.

Last of all, let there be
Humankind serving me.

God said, "Yes! This is the best!
Now let’s take a day for rest."
