Oh Children

Date: Unknown

Oh children, children, my beloved
I love your prayerful ways
I love each hair upon your head
And number all your days

There is a family in my heart
Created out of love
But through the years of sin and strife
Some left my throne above

Could you not live your marriage vows
Of love till death do part
Or did the world begin itís work
To rip and tear my heart

My Son, the Truth, the Light, the Way
Has come to heal this pace
To mend this broken marriage vow
Someday to see His face.
