Camel Train

1
’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.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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!

Not quite the way I was taught back in the 70's. Lyrics slightly different but still a fun song.

Thank you so very much for your help. I was finally able to download the song "Camel Train" and the music lines for it. My pastor will thank you too. It was at his request that I was trying to get it for him. He has been quite ill lately so that was also an extreme reason to try to get a copy for him. Again thank your for your help and may God Bless you for your kindness and may you prosper in this website.

Sincerely

Can the sheet music for these songs be printed, copied-pasted and printed. Or can they be bought. I have been looking for the song The Camel Train for my Pastor at his request and found it on your site. I have looked everywhere and the only one I could find other than here was for a choir and was about 8 or 10 pages. Our church is small and does not have a choir per-say. Thank you for any you can give.

This song is awesome. Reminds us of the beauty of our re-union with Jesus. It will also foster pure love in the home, among couple and in the church of Jesus Christ.
