A Man of God

Years ago our family enjoyed the “Considering God’s Creation” curriculum by Eagel’s wings.  One thing we really liked was that there were songs to reinforce some of the concepts we learned.  There were songs about the planets, the weather, the water cycle, reptiles and even mold. There was one song though that I wish I could sing to you.  It was basically the prayer of a mother’s heart.

The melody is simple, and the lyrics are very basic,  but it has become a theme song for me to remember while on my homeschooling journey.

A Man of God

I don’t care if you play football or play in the band,

I don’t care if you’re a doctor or a garbage man,

it doesn’t matter if you’re good in school or great at art,

there is just one thing I care with all my heart.

That you grow up to be a man of God,

That you use his word as a measuring rod,

that you love your neighbor as yourself,

that you do not trust in this world’s wealth,

that you grow up to be a man of God.

I don’t care if you’re a loner or have lots of friends,

I don’t care if your clothes are new or they have lots of mends,

it doesn’t matter if your tall and thin or short and round,

there’s just one important thing that I have found.

That you grow up to be a man of God,

that you use his word as a measuring rod,

that you love your neighbor as yourself,

that you do not trust in this world’s wealth

but that you grow up to be a man of God.
