1 This is the voice of God
That to the children speaks,
And in each earthly home
A willing echo seeks.
“Obey your parents
In the Lord,
In the Lord,
In the Lord.”
‘Tis God’s own voice,
‘Tis God’s own word,
‘Tis God’s own voice,
‘Tis God’s own word.

Chorus:
This is the voice of God
That to the children speaks,
And in each earthly home
A willing echo seeks.

2 ‘Twas spoken on the mount
To Moses, and it came,
On, on thro’ clouds and smoke
Thro’ trumpet and thro’ flame.
“Honor thy parents,”
Saith the Lord,
Saith the Lord,
Saith the Lord;
‘Tis God’s own voice,
‘Tis God’s own word,
‘Tis God’s own voice,
‘Tis God’s own word. [Chorus]

3 When Jesus came to earth
He was a little child,
Who learn’d obedience well
In actions meek and mild.
“Honor thy parents,”
Saith the Lord,
Saith the Lord,
Saith the Lord;
He knew the voice,
He heard the word,
He knew the voice,
He heard the word. [Chorus]

4 Oh, children, walk with Christ
In duties’ path he trod
And when your journey’s o’er
You’ll have a home with God.
“Obey your parents,”
Saith the Lord,
Saith the Lord,
Saith the Lord;
‘Tis his own voice,
‘Tis his own word,
‘Tis his own voice,
‘Tis his own word. [Chorus]
