Excellent rhyme to teach kids the 10 essentials for a successful life.
The Ten Commandments “became an integral part of our culture by appearing in verse form in one of McGuffey’s famous Readers.”
–D. Elton Trueblood
Above all else love God alone;
Bow down to neither wood nor stone.
God’s name refuse to take in vain;
The Sabbath rest with care maintain.
Respect your parents all your days;
Hold sacred human life always.
Be loyal to your chosen mate;
Steal nothing neither small nor great.
Report, with truth, your neighbor’s deed;
And rid your mind of selfish greed.
This is an easy way for children to begin to learn them. As they grow, read them the text itself, Exodus 20.
