The Holy Days

First comes Passover, it’s not for everyone.
It’s for baptized members, and it’s a solemn one.

In the Days of Unleavened Bread, we get rid of all the puff.
Jealousy, lying, stealing and all that sinful stuff.

Next comes Pentecost, after counting 50 days.
Appreciating the Holy Spirit in a special way.

Then comes Trumpets with seven trumpet blasts.
When the last one sounds, Christ will come at last.

Then there’s Atonement, unlike other days.
We fast for a while, and Satan will be put away.

The Feast of Tabernacles, what a wonderful feast.
With lots of other brethren, we will celebrate world peace.

The Last Great Day, when peace will have begun.
And God’s word will be available to everyone.
