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,
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 Rebekah,
Dressed in jewels rich and rare,
Quickly to her waiting bridegroom far away.
Where Rebekah loved her Isaac,
And he loved Rebekah 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 Rebekah by His side.
We have left our kinfolk gladly;
We have bade the world goodbye.
We've been called to be His pure and spotless Bride;
Where we'll soon behold our Jesus
In that blest eternity—
What a happy, happy wedding that will be!

I heard this on Jimmy Swaggerts program a few weeks ago - I had not heard it in years and was sooooo blessed that nite by hearing it again. I have been looking for it and decided to see if this amazing iPad that was an 80th birthday gift for me, was all it was cracked up to be-------and lo and behold-- there it was AND the music playing loud and clear ( so many times the sound doesn't come thru when I try to play various things). I know The Lord had His hand on this!! Thank you Jimmy for the years of blessings of music - thru it all!! God bless.

I just heard this song for the first time by Jimmy Swaggart last week Sunday when listening to one of his messages I downloaded. This song is awesome, it takes me into the deep realm of intercourse with God's Spirit. I love it.

This song paints a vivid picture of that great day when we shall meet our Lord and Savior in the sky. When He presents His bride (The church) to His Father in heaven; then the most beautiful wedding ever will take place. Like song says "Oh, get ready!" I want to be ready, don't you?

Camel Train was written and originally performed by my Paternal Grandfather, Rev. Hansel P. Vibbert, deceased. By the way, the proper title for this song is Camel Train.

I had this song sung at my wedding and haven't heard it since. This was 25 years ago. I'm so glad I came upon it here.
