Poem from my old blog

I must be a Christian child, 
Gentle, patient, meek, and mild;
Must be honest, simple, true
In my words and actions too.
I must cheerfully obey, 
Giving up my will and way;…

Must remember, God can view 
All i think, and all I do.
Glad that i can know I try, 
Glad that children such as I, 
In our feeble ways and small,
Can serve Him who loves us all.

-Amish school verse from “The Riddle of Amish Culture” by Donald Kraybill
