|That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: that they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments. (Psa. 78:6‑7)
|As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. (Josh. 24:15)
|Hold Thou my hand as I hold his,
And so guide that I may guide;
Teach me, Lord, that I may teach,
And keep me free from foolish pride.
|Help me to help this boy of mine,
To be to him a father true;
Hold me, Lord, for everything,
As fast I hold my boy for You.
