The Family Song

O, Husband, God calls you the head of the house,

As Christ is the Head of the Church, His bride.

Just as you love your body so cherish your wife,

And know her and care for her there at your side,

                                                        Oriental couple

As God gave His Son on the cross for your sin,    

Be willing to give all; her needs to supply.

Be satisfied now with the wife of your youth.

In oneness be blessed, and your God glorify.


Now, Wife, it is written that you must submit.

Be willing to yield to him as to the Lord.

 In subjection and meekness of spirit adorned,   

 Be beautiful in your behavior and word.

Created by God to be meet for this man,

You're joined with him all of the rest of your days.

The virtuous woman fair rubies exceeds,

So work and be faithful in all of your ways.


Little children, now it is your job to obey.  

Your father and mother, obey in the Lord.

Then honor your parents; God watches above.

He said that long days He will give in reward.

                                                           Family on stairs

Be careful to listen and hear what they say.   

Apply your young hearts to learn wisdom and truth.

Determine right now that you will do what's right,   

For then you'll be happy and not need reproof.


Godly parents, please build your house all for the Lord, 

Or else it will falter, and all be in vain.

 Lead your children to know God, and trust in His Son.

 Then He will be with them and always sustain.

                       black father with children

O, Father, provoke not your children to wrath,

But be the example, and show them the way.

Your children are arrows in your quiver full,

So aim them toward heaven, for Christ every day.

Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; 3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. 4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Proverbs 31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Psalm 127:1a Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: 3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. 4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. 5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
