After I was born again the Lord gave me a deep love for my parents, and I am grateful that I received that love before it was too late …


Love your parents, love each one,

Love them for the good they’ve done,

Love them hard and love them long,

Love them still when they are wrong.


Love them young when all is bright,

Love them old in dark of night,

Love them oh so joyfully,

Love them in humility.


Love them with what matters most,

Love them in the Holy Ghost,

Love them truly from your heart,

Love them dear before you part.


Love a gift from God above,

Love is lasting, only love.

When their time on earth is spent,

You’ll have treasure heaven sent.
