Children's Children

"Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers" (Proverbs 17:6).

Children's children are the crown
Of old men gladly worn.
Today this song is written down,
For one more has been born!

Children's children are the crown
Of old men, says the Proverbs,
And the glory of chiLdren found,
We're told then, are their fathers.

Noah Byron de la Motte,
This morning, around One,
Arrived to show what God had wrought:
Another precious son!

Josiah is the firstborn's name,
Then Pearl Anne arrived,
Elijah, then Naomi came,
And Noah now makes five.

We thank You for these children, Lord,
And pray they will pursue
Abundant life that You reward
To those who trust in You.
