Them Bones Gonna Walk Around

Ezekiel, too, gathered bones in the desert but it was our African-American brothers and sisters who sang the song over them in this Spiritual:
Ezekiel cried them dry bones.
Now hear the word of the Lord
Ezekiel connected them dry bones.
Now hear the word of the Lord.
Your toe bone connected to your foot bone.
Your foot bone connected to your ankle bone.
Your ankle bone connected to your leg bone.
Your leg bone connected to your thigh bone.
Your thigh bone connected to your hip bone.
Your hip bone connected to your back bone.
Your back bone connected to your shoulder bone.
Your shoulder bone connected to your neck bone.
Your neck bone connected to your head bone.
Now hear the word of the Lord.
Them bones gonna walk around.
Now hear the word of the Lord.
Sometimes someone else sings with us over the bones we collect when we do our Soulwork, as when Jesus healed the paralytic man because of the faith of his four friends. It's like them bones are gonna walk around even if we have little faith, no matter what!
