Children

Doreene Felder 1967 (Phila.)



Children are a blessing from the Lord
Bring a child up in the way he should go ,he will return
If you bring them up in a way you don't know
There's all sorts of things they will learn
Doing your best includes many test
Doing much less shows troubles and concerns
Put God's word inside their soul
And watch them grow with a testimony of gold
We all have disappointments in life
No one said it wouldn't be strife
Live each he day like it's your own
For the life you live shall be the life you own.
