God is Not Like Peanut Bread

My sister Annie and I used to record ourselves singing everything from "Just Around the Riverbend" to "God of Wonders" on those small, rectangular double-spools of tape called cassettes.

You may recall them.

Anyhow, a snatch of one of those songs popped into my head today, out of nowhere:

Yesterday, in Bible times, when they sat down to eat
They had peanut bread and matza, and the honey was so sweeeeet.

But today, in modern times, we have hamburgers and fries
We have pepperoni pizzas, we have strawberry pie-ieeeeees!
Only God know what tomorrow will bring!

Oh, yesterday, today and tomorrow
Everything around us seems to change
But as we turn back the pages, and look through the ages
We see the love of God has always been the same.
Chew on that. No pun intended.


  1. It's funny that I come across this googling for this song. It also popped into my head just now. I remember singing that song at VBS at my grandmother's church when I was smaller. I can't seem to find complete lyrics for it, but it was nice to see partial lyrics for a song I remembered from when I was a kid!

  2. Found this too searching for VBS lyrics. I think it was,

    "Yesterday, in Bible times, the way we got around,
    Was by camel or by donkey or we walked from town to town.

    But today in modern times, we've got a lot of wheels.
    We've got tricycles and bicycles and automobiles.
    Only God knows what tomorrow will bring!"
