Our Father has a family. It’s me! It’s you, all others too: we are His children. He sent each one of us to earth, through birth, To live and learn here in fam’lies.
God gave us families to help us become what He wants us to be— This is how He shares His love, for the fam’ly is of God.
A father’s place is to preside, provide, To love and teach the gospel to his children. A father leads in fam’ly prayer to share Their love for Father in Heaven.
A mother’s purpose is to care, prepare, To nurture and to strengthen all her children. She teaches children to obey, to pray, To love and serve in the fam’ly.
I’ll love and serve my family and be A good example to each fam’ly member. And when I am a mom or dad, so glad, I’ll help my fam’ly remember: God gave us families to help us become what He wants us to be— This is how He shares His love, for the fam’ly is of God.
I Am a Child of God
I am a child of God, And he has sent me here, Has given me an earthly home With parents kind and dear.
Lead me, guide me, walk beside me, Help me find the way. Teach me all that I must do To live with him someday.
I am a child of God, And so my needs are great; Help me to understand his words Before it grows too late.
I am a child of God. Rich blessings are in store; If I but learn to do his will I'll live with him once more.
I am a child of God. His promises are sure; Celestial glory shall be mine If I can but endure.
