In Genesis 1 it says that God created everything about our planet and He said it was good. Then He made us, and He said it was very good. Some scholars believe that when it says "God said..." that actually the word in Hebrew would be better translated "God SANG..." I think that's beautiful. As an artist I find this to be one of the most exciting qualities of God. Anyway, He took six days to complete His creation and that could be what the "six geese a laying" represent on day six - the birth of our planet. Find your download on 4shared or Box.

According to a few websites the modern version of the fourth day that says "calling birds" might have been mistranslated from "colly birds," which is an old English nickname for a blackbird. That could be, since I can think of at least one other rhyme that refers to blackbirds. Well, some believe that the difference between calling and colly might debunk the Christian theory of the song. The theory being if it's calling birds it represents the four gospels. I don't know why colly birds would force it to NOT represent them though... I mean if French hens can represent faith, hope, and love, why can't blackbirds represent the gospels? I think it's more about the number. Well, anyway, the four gospels are the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and they all tell the story of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection, from four different points of view.
So what do the three French Hens represent? Well, according to this tradition we're looking at, the three French Hens represent the three virtues of Faith, Hope, and Love from 1 Corinthians 13:13. But I wonder if they could also represent the trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
