keep your tongue...

....keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. Psalm 34:13

Keep your tongue from evil,
keep your tongue
Keep your tongue from evil,
keep your tongue
and your lips from speaking lies,
Keep your tongue from evil,
keep your tongue
I know I've mentioned before how much we're enjoying our Steve Green cd's that we've downloaded off of iTunes. It's amazing to me how easily children can pick up the lyrics to songs and one of the great things about the Steve Green ones that we have is that they are songs based on Scripture.
This morning, Gracie said our prayer for us as we left for school. She asked God to help us not to tell lies and to keep us from evil. I questioned her about what she had prayed and told her that it was a good prayer. I asked her where she had heard that from because it wasn't her usual prayer. She said it was from the song that I posted the lyrics to above. She loves this song because after they sing it the first time, they say to hold your tongue and sing it. Of course, it sounds funny that way which makes it stick in her mind that much more.
Dear Lord,
Thank you for the precious hearts & spirits of our children. May we learn from them.
In Jesus' Name,

I think music is a powerful teaching tool for children! That sounds like a wonderful cd!

We have a video of that very same album... bought back in 2001 or so. The kids loved it. It used to amaze people to hear my then-2yo be able to quote "Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right."
