    The coat of many colors
    Was a story I was told
    About a young boy named Joseph
    Who for jealousy was sold
    Into slavery by his brothers
    And brought to a distant land
    Where pyramids and idols stood
    In a land of palms and sand
    The years he spent were lonely ones
    Away from Jacob’s tent
    Not knowing it was in God’s plan
    To Egypt he be sent
    To save the whole world from a drought
    And the famine that would be
    And bring his family to the land
    To fulfill the prophecy
    Four hundred years the Israelites
    Would serve on Egyptian soil
    Until a man named Moses came
    And freed them from their toil
    Because of a coat of many colors
    That Jacob gave his son
    The freedom of God’s people
    By faith was finally won
    Now you may think that this tale
    Ended thousands of years ago
    But here’s one thing that I think
    That all of you should know
    You never know the purposes
    God has in each our lives
    He doesn’t tell us everything
    And many things he hides
    Until we go through the trial
    We only see in part
    When coming out the other side
    It’s then we see God’s heart.
