In a land that I know,
There once lived two funny old dames.
They both used to pray
In their own special way,
Dame Bumble and Humble, their names.
Dame Bumble was loud,
And would yell to the crowd,
Of her praises to God everyday.
She would roar and would shout,
Till the crowd ran about,
And fled to get out of her way.
Dame Humble was kind,
And the crowd did not mind,
When she told them of God’s mighty love.
With one gentle touch,
She showed them how much,
Was the beauty of Heaven above.
With a crash and a rumble,
Along came Dame Bumble,
And bellowed right up to the sky.
All the children in tears,
Tried to cover their ears,
And all of them started to cry.
Dame Humble would come,
And show everyone,
That there really was nothing to fear.
She’d calm them all down,
And remove every frown.
And remind them that God’s ever near.
Dame Bumble meant well,
When she screamed about Hell,
But she frightened each woman and man.
And they would all shout:
Dame Bumble’s about,
Run away, run as fast as you can.
Dame Humble again,
Would soothe all their pain,
And teach them of God’s perfect peace.
Learn how to forgive,
So forever you’ll live,
In Heaven where joy will not cease.
With a loud clap of thunder,
In Bumble would blunder,
And the houses would shiver and shake.
She would shatter the glass,
And shrivel the grass,
And the earth would a-quiver and quake.
With the warmth of the sun,
Dame Humble, she won,
All the hearts of the people with love.
They fell to their knees,
And prayed to God, please,
Let us worship our Father above.
So what do you see?
It’s as plain as can be.
It’s the things that you do, not say,
That will open the gate,
Of love and not hate,
And will show people God’s perfect way.
