It's Rosh Hashana, the New Year Time for us to think about our lives and the directions that we're going in And let the sound of the shofar guide us. Take a listen. Here's a Torah story so open up your ears. G-d said: Hey I think it’s 'bout time I appear. To Abraham and Sarah, let 'em know that they'll have a son. Second forefather to Jews - he'll be the one. So there’s Abraham sitting at his tent Third day after entering God’s covenant God sent three angels disguised as men Abraham wanted guests so he ran after them, saying: Excuse me sirs, such a hot day Makes sense for you to stop since you came my way So they came & chilled out under a tree Abraham and Sarah went to make some food to eat In the midst of conversation, they told him: Sarah’s gonna give birth, even though she's old Sarah laughed and said: I’m 90! You’re joking! But God can do anything…the Lord has spoken! I can hear the shofar calling, calling Listen up and no stalling I think I should change my mind, God's given me the time I don’t need another sign, I'ma get it right I can hear the shofar calling, calling Listen up and no stalling I think I should change my mind, God's given me the time I don’t need another sign, I'ma get it right One year later, everything changed Sarah gave birth and Isaac is his name He wouldn’t care about fortune and fame Just like his daddy 'cause the two looked the same And the boy was learning more every day Staying out of trouble, holy in every way He refused to treat life like a game 'Cause he knew he had to carry on the family name Now Abraham loved his sons, no question Praying that they could both reach perfection That’s why what happened next was so vexing Abraham was about to get the test of all testings The Lord said bring Isaac as a sacrifice And to your ear, yeah, I know it don’t sound nice But Abraham didn’t even think twice I know this is a test, I want to do what's right I can hear the shofar calling, calling Listen up and no stalling I think I should change my mind, God's given me the time I don’t need another sign, I'ma get it right I can hear the shofar calling, calling Listen up and no stalling I think I should change my mind, God's given me the time I don’t need another sign, I'ma get it right Now this is the moment of truth And Isaac, for sure, was prepared from his youth to pass this test Even though he didn’t know it, Abraham kept the faith, not afraid to show it So they brought up the donkey, the wood, the fire All eyes set on Mount Moriah And don’t forget Ishmael & Eliezer But when we see the mountain - you two stay right here Isaac said: Father, just one thing? Where’s the lamb for the burnt offering we're supposed to bring? He said: Son, God will bring us one that’s nice. But Isaac knew that he was the sacrifice They both walked on with smiles on their faces Hey son, I’m positive this is where the place is Abraham strapped him up, ready for the slaughter But an angel said: Stop! Use this ram....feel the shofar! This is a story that we read every Rosh Hashana. It's important that we pay attention to the calls that God sends us in our lives to fulfill our mission God bless. I can hear the shofar calling, calling Listen up and no stalling I think I should change my mind, God's given me the time I don’t need another sign, I'ma get it right
