Children's Reply Poem by Julia Ann Moore


We are little children,
That go to Sabbath school,
To hear of our Redeemer,
Likewise the golden rule.

We will try and do our duty,
To friends and parents dear,
We will try and do our duty,
Their loving hearts to cheer.

CHORUS:

We are little children,
That love to go to school,
We love to hear of Jesus,
And learn the golden rule.

We will love our parents,
With all our little hearts;
Yes, we will obey them,
We will not from duty part,

For oh, we know they love us,
Though wayward we may be --
Their heart it never changes,
From our little infancy.

We will love our schoolmates,
Likewise our teacher, dear,
For loving words of kindness
From them we often hear.

And we will not forget them,
Those friends so kind and true,
For in the ten commandments
They tell us what to do.
