    When we present God's holy law,
    And arguments from scripture draw,
    Objectors say, to pick a flaw,
    'It's Jewish'
    Though at the first G-d blessed
    And sanctified His day of rest,
    The same belief is still expressed,
    'It's Jewish.'
    Though with the world this rest began,
    And thence through all the Scriptures ran,
    And Yeshua said 'twas made for man--
    'It's Jewish.'
    Though not with Jewish rites, which passed,
    But with the moral law 'twas classed,
    Which must exist while time shall last,
    'It's Jewish.'
    If from the Scripture we present
    The Sabbath's meaning and intent,
    This answers every argument--
    'It's Jewish.'
    Though the disciples, Luke and Paul,
    Continue still this rest to call
    The 'Sabbath day', this answers all,
    'It's Jewish.'
    The gospel teacher's plain expression,
    That " Sin is of the law transgression,"
    Seems not to make the least impression--
    'It's Jewish.'
    They love the rest of man's invention,
    But if Adonai's day we mention,
    This puts and end to all contention,
    'It's Jewish.'
    O ye who thus God's day abuse,
    Simply because 'twas kept by Jews,
    The Saviour, too, you must refuse,
    He's Jewish.
    The Scriptures, then, we may expect
    For the same reason you'll reject;
    For if you will but recollect,
    They're Jewish.
    Thus the apostles, too, must fall;
    For Andrew, Peter, James, and Paul,
    Thomas, Matthew, John, and all
    Were Jewish.
    So to your helpless state resign
    Yourself in wretchedness to pine;
    Salvation, surely you'll decline,
    It's Jewish.

    Reishit khokhmah yir'at Adonai. Sekhel tov
    l'khol oskhem. Barukh shem k'vod malkhuto
    l'olam va'ed.
