The Duty of Children

It is right to obey,
Their parents everyday;
And be taking an oath,
In honoring them both.

Their life here on the earth,
That their mother gave birth;
All may be well for them,
Branch out from a small stem.

So their life may be worth,
Living long on this earth;
Taught wisdom and insight,
For knowing what is right.

Fathers must also teach,
How far children can reach;
Training to fear the Lord,
Duty is their reward.

Showing fear and respect,
When adult can affect;
Through the toils and strife,
For the rest of their life.
