Description

From the Houston Children’s Chorus series comes an historic story-anthem, Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin. Remember the story of Daniel and the hand writing on the wall at Belshazaar’s feast? Thanks to the clever words of J. Paul Williams, and the creative music of Craig Curry, any choir that sings this anthem will never forget the story or the words written on the wall.

In the land of Babylon there lived a wicked king
Belshazzar was his name and he did wicked things
His father had been faithful to God but Belshazzar didn't care
He was a mighty ruler, a king beyond compare ("so he thought!")

Belshazzar threw a party for a thousand of his friends
He took gold and silver vessels from the temple where they'd been
He took things dedicated to God and praised the gods of men
Belshazzar threw a party but it was about to end

Mene, mene tekel upharsin is what Belshazzar saw
Mene, mene tekel upharsin a hand wrote on the wall
He trembled with fear but could not hide
He was in trouble because of his pride
Mene, mene tekel upharsin a hand wrote on the wall

The message was from God Belshazzar did not understand
Daniel told him what it meant and that God would divide his land
The Medes and the Persians would conquer him
A new king would be crowned that night
Mene, mene tekel upharsin Belshazzar shook with fright

Mene, mene tekel upharsin is what Belshazzar saw
Mene, mene tekel upharsin a hand wrote on the wall
His foolish pride cut short his reign on that very night the king was slain
Mene, mene tekel upharsin a hand wrote on the wall

Mene, mene tekel upharsin take heed so you don't fall
Mene, mene tekel upharsin a hand wrote on the wall
Mene, mene tekel upharsin don't mess with God at all
Mene, mene tekel upharsin the writing's on the wall

Mene, mene tekel upharsin
