"As for me and my house, we will
serve the Lord" - Joshua 24:15
Tune: “Lehin aye buburu yi”
1. l and all those of my household
Will worship and serve the Lord God
But I even I will
By my words and by my actions
Show that I know the God of heav'n
And serve Him truthfully.
2. I will create good example
And remove every obstacle
From the way of my ward
By my life, show them their duty
Yet, in my duty, to obtain
Honour that comes through love.
3. I’ll be easily entreated
And in wrath remember mercy
The Lord’s true disciple,
I also want to be holy
And bring my household and loved ones
Into the narrow way.
4. When Thou has put the flame of love
Within this chosen vessels heart
Receive it to Thyself;
Lord, do Thy goodwill within me
Help to show by my life how each
Bible Christian should live.
5. Grant to me, dear Lord, Thy good grace
Behold, I come to testify
Of Thy wonderful name
That sav’d my soul from perdition
And the grace that is felt within
Of which each tongue can speak.
6. I who have been set free from sin
Desire my household to be sav'd
I would tell of pardon
To my child, my wife and servants
To make them walk in the good way
To holy heaven bound. Amen
