The Name of the Lord in My Childrens Songs


“the name of the Lord is

a strong tower

the righteous run into it

and they are saved”


from two lovely children in a kitchen

colouring their squashed things

joyous, without knowing why

at the life theyve been given


and me, their father

and she, their mother

glance at each other

and smile


can any gift be greater

than to know ones children

love the Lord

and sing His praise



With memories of John and the gang at Ivanhoe,

sitting in front enthusiastically doing the actions.
