Can You Bind The Unicorn?

By Veronica and Elton Smith

Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib? Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee? Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labor to him? Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn? Job 39:9-11 (KJV)

My daughter, Veronica, drew the pictures on this page and asked if we could put them on the web. She also had identified a passage from the King James Bible that talks about unicorns. We sat down and wrote this song together based on the verses. The lyrics are by Veronica and I wrote the music. - Elton, December 29, 2002

Oh, unicorn will you serve me,
abide by my crib?
Can I trust you with all my labor
Because your strength is so great?
Can you bind the unicorn
and hitch him to a plow?
Will he plow the valleys after thee
Or run and be free?
Or run and be free?


Can you bind the unicorn
and hitch him to a plow?
Will he plow the valleys after thee
Or run and be free?
Or run and be free?
Or run and be free?
Or run and be free?
Or run and be free?
