Tune: "Standing on the Promises"
Mo-ses sent some men to spy out Ca-naan's land.
Out of ev-'ry tribe of Is-rael sent a man.
"Learn a-bout the peo-ple, are they strong or weak?
Is the fruit the kind of food we seek?"
Go and find out
If the land is poor or fer-tile.
Are there trees there?
Bring back fru-uit.
We need to know a-bout this pro-mised land.
Josh-u-a and Ca-leb were a-mong the group
Who a-cross the land for for-ty days did troop.
Saw a bunch of grapes; the big-gest they had seen.
Put it on a pole two men be-tween.
Refrain - Men:
"Let's show Mo-ses
Tru-ly it's a land of milk and hon-ey,
Such a good land!
We'll tell them all a-bout the things we've seen."
Verse 3 - The Ten Spies:
"We saw cit-ies large and ver-y for-ti-fied.
We could nev-er take them e-ven though we tried.
Men as tall as gi-ants,
You should see their size!
We seemed like grass-hop-pers in our eyes."
"We can't take it,
We are ver-y fear-ful of the
Men we saw there.
We must not try
For sure-ly ev-'ry one of us will die!"
Verse - Caleb:
"Though the men are ver-y tall and of great size
We must not think we are small in our own eyes.
God is going to give His help to ev-'ry man
We can take pos-ses-sion of the land. "
"We must go and
Take the land of Ca-naan
God will give it to us.
He will keep now
The pro-mise that He made so long a-go."

The Caleb Quest: What You Can Learn from the Boldest Dreamer in the Bible
By Mark Atteberry / Thomas Nelson
Did you begin your adult life with ambitious dreams and the energy and determination to make them come true? Along the way, did your focus change as life "happened," and did you allow your dreams to fizzle or even die? Is that the way it has to be? Do dreams come true for "ordinary" people? And if so, what does it take to make them happen? Atteberry believes God has answered these questions in the life of Caleb, the boldest dreamer and achiever in all of Scripture.
In The Caleb Quest, Atteberry allows you to see that dreams don't come true by accident. On the contrary, fulfilled dreams are the result of clear thinking, strong faith, patience, and hard work. Geared to the everyday Christian, this biblical plan will help you test your dreams, identify "dream assassins," get God involved, accept His perfect timing, take action in the pursuit of your dreams, and use your dreams to bless others.
