Psalm 119 v. 9-16

The great end in religious instruction is not to stamp our minds upon the young, but to awaken their own.- William Ellery Channing

What shall we teach the children?
That same law of loving justice
That the wise seek you and strive to live in your way.
To treasure the conscience you have planted in us
and the guilt that strikes us when we are astray.
To be grateful and to look within for guidance
To attend to the world’s wisdom but to follow the wisdom
of their own hearts.
To meditate on your commandments
and attend to your ways.
To delight in your statutes
and forget not your word.
