Coat Of Many Colors

By louis gander

If brothers plot to kill you –

they tease and taunt and gloat –

and it was taken from you –

your multicolored coat –

if sin and evil torture you –

and throw you in a pit –

if dry and dusty are those walls

yet you refuse to quit –

if try, you to convince them –

but heckles are aplenty –

if sold then into slavery –

for shekels, only twenty –

if sold again, again you are –

and lies persist unjust –

if after you are thrown in jail –

in God, you still will trust –

then after all is said and done –

and king and father see –

the tears of joy will flow again.

Forgiving there will be.

Oh, God will one day make amends

to them who were deceived –

and ‘coat of many colors’ is,

for those who have believed…
