TRAIN UP A CHILD

by Larry Nickel

LYRICS

Mother, father,
tend the fragile lives God placed in your care.
Take the time you need, be consistent and fair.
Take the time to listen.
Take the time to share your feelings.

Prepare your sons and daughters 
for the perils of today.
Profound impressions are made
at a young and tender age.

Train up a child in the Word of God
He will not depart from it when he’s older.

Train up a child in the way he should go
in the end he will not depart from it.

Mother, father,
tend the fragile lives God placed in your care.
Discipline with love, not a cold angry stare.
They are always watching
make your life a good example.

adapted from 1 Peter 5, Psalm 115:9
Proverbs 22:6, 13
