and for children

Quietly, cleverly,
sweet and sly,
hear him lie,
tempt you into sins so small,
so to big ones soon to fall. –
Shun the tempter’s way,
read God’s Word and pray.

All the day, all you say,
all you do, should be true.
Don’t deceive, be cross, unkind,
careful how you use your mind:
watch, take care, and pray,
walk the narrow way.

What a fool, when at school,
giving in, doing sin.
Other children haven’t heard
clear teaching from God’s Word.
Think what’s right to do, –
some may copy you!
