Training in the Truth

"Let your children know, saying, Israel came over this Jordan on dry land… That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God forever" (Joshua 4:22,24).  "I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love" (Psalm 119:113).  "My son, keep thy father's commandment… For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life" (Proverbs 6:20,23).  "Jesus… saith unto them, Have faith in God" (Mark 11:22).   

We ought to train our children well
By showing them in history
How God conducted Israel  
Both through the Red and Jordon Sea. 

The danger that is faced today
By children whom we seek to train
Is that they're prone to go astray,
Forsaking truth for what is vain. 

The Word of God shall make them wise
As they explore His wondrous acts,
In contrast to the devil's lies,  
Destroying those whom he distracts. 

For training in the truth, O Lord,
We turn from lies that men applaud 
To show our children the reward
You give to those who trust in God.
