                God Was In My School



when I was young
and went to school
in the morning
the first thing we would do
was bow our head and say,
~~~~~
OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN
HALLOWED BE THY NAME
THY KINGDOM COME THY WILL BE
DONE IN EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD
AND FORGIVE US OUR DEBTS
AS WE FORGIVE OUR DEBTORS.
AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION
BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL
FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM AND
THE POWER AND GLORY FOREVER AMEN
~~~~~
When I was young and went
to school in the morning
the second thing we would do
we would hold our head high
hand on our heart and say,
~~~~~
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG
OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH
IT STANDS ONE NATION UNDER GOD
~~~~~
I am not young any more
I don't go to school any more.
But every chance I get
you know what I do.
I bow my head and say
THE LORD'S PRAYER
~~~~~
And ever chance I get
I hold my head high
hand on my heart and say
THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
and real loud say
ONE NATION UNDER GOD
~~~~~
We were not afraid to show respect
for God Flag and Country
in my school
