On Obedience

Listen! Mother calls with a command.
Hear! Father shouts a demand.
Obey! Lest you a rod should meet.
Honor them, that your days may be sweet.

No complaint and no grumble
should e’er depart your lips.
No storm in your heart should rumble;
make smooth your seas for your ships.

God has placed them o’er you;
so in everything you do –
do with peace & joy & love,
and as you work, praise God above!

If you work with glad hearts & hands,
if you put in all you can,
if you work with God in mind,
you will very surely find

all God’s promises do ring true.
In due time, God will reward you.
Obey your parents, but above all,
obey the God who gifts Life to all!
