A is for Adam and he was the first man
B for the brimstone that rained on the land
C is for Cain, he slew his brother you know
D is for Daniel who the lions let go
E is for Elijah, up to heaven he went
F for the furnace where Shadrach was sent
G for Goliath, by a boy he was slain
H is for Hannah who prayed out in vain

Hear, hear, hear, the alphabet
Taken from the Good Book of the Lord

J is for Jonah and he lived in a whale
K is for Kingdom that divided us all

O is for Obadiah and the prophets he fed
P is for Peter and the tears that he shed
