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...
