Please, promise me, my little one
That as you grow into a man,
You’ll set goals for yourself
And do the best that you can.
It doesn’t matter if you fail
Or succeed in what you do,
As long as you feel satisfied
And keep the values found in you.
Promise me, as time goes by,
You’ll stop to help those in need,
Regardless of their circumstance,
Their race, income, or creed.
Establish time to get to know
The God who loves you for yourself
And sees within your great heart,
Your goodness and your soul’s wealth.
Make this a goal in your life,
To make the world a better place,
Before God calls you home with Him,
To live forever in His grace.
