Children Poem by Caroline Gavin of Purposeful Pathway Coaching

“Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him.” ~ Psalm 127:3


With wide, bright eyes,

Looking up with love,

Surely children are gifts

From our Father above.


With simple faith,

With trust strong and pure,

With a tender love

All things to endure,


Surely little children

Reflect God’s eternal light,

Desiring all that is good,

Indeed all that is right.


So let us treasure them,

On God’s way let us lead,

With His Holy Word

Their hearts let us feed.


For when we train a child

In the way he should go,

Through all his years

That way he will follow.


Children are entrusted to us

By our Father’s grace,

So let these precious children

Our hearts embrace.


The Kingdom of Heaven

Let us welcome as a child;

Let us be humble and meek,

Pure, loving and mild.


With adoration let us listen

At Jesus’ feet,

Emulating our children

With love pure and sweet.


As children of God

Let us reflect His eternal light,

Doing all that is good,

Doing only what is right.


Yes, with simple faith,

With trust strong and pure,

With a tender love

All things to endure,


Let us be as little children,

Looking up with love,

Giving glory and praise

To our Father above.

    I don’t have any children, but children are so trusting and it would be great if we could trust God like children trust.

    Have a Victorious Day!
