What will they remember?
The words that you will say?
The way you touched their hair, or
How you played their favorite game?
What will they say?
Will they praise the highest Name?
Will they make the greatest case, for
Life without doubt and blame?
What will they do?
Will they work while it is light?
Will they make the best of what they have and
Fight the faithful fight?
If things you do before your kids
Seem fruitless and in vain,
Remember, they remember things
And they are yours and mine to change.
