Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

Lord Thy Word Abideth

The Composed Song

1. Ye fathers of the children

See that ye teach your children

How prayers should be offered

Yea and the word of God


2. Ye fathers of the children

Bring even thine children up

And that also in the faith

That is in Jesus Christ


3. Ye fathers of the children

As ye interact with thine children

Do not provoke ‘em to anger

Lest their hearts be discouraged


4. Ye fathers of the children

Ensure that you ‘r doing this

Thou should guide thine children by

‘Dmonish an’ nurturin’ ‘em in the Lord


5. Ye fathers of the children

With wisdom thou should also

Be living with thine children

Even in the world we live in


6. Ye fathers of the children

Fix thy gaze on Jesus christ

Let thine deed and b’havior

Also be impeccable


7. Ye fathers of the children

Be thou a good example

Even unto thine children

Even as Jesus is to thee
