Give Ear Unto God’s Holy Word
I asked Prentiss Allen, Christiana Kendall, and Hunter Kendall to sing this final song, “Give Ear Unto God’s Holy Word.” The words are so powerful and so fitting for our Old-Fashioned Memorial Day Celebration,
So shall thy children hope in God, and not forget His name, But follow in the ways of Him Who always is the same.
Give ear unto God’s Holy Word and hear His perfect law; Remember what His hand hath done and tell His works to all.Recount unto thy children’s hearts the things which thou wast told, The truth which thou hast heard and known from generations old.Recount the works of evil men who turned their heats from God; Recall the judgment of the Lord, Be hold, His chast’ning rod;Reproach the men of fainting heart who fled before the fight; Acclaim the men who fought for truth and stood for righteousness.Remember God’s almighty hand to those in deepest need; His Providential care for those Who trusted Him indeed.From rocks there issued healing streams, The heavens yielded bread-Make known to all God’s wondrous care Where’er His hand hath led.
So shall thy children hope in God, and not forget His name. but follow in the ways of Him Who always is the same.
This song was taken from Psalm 78 and was penned by a friend of Prentiss Allen who arranged it and set the words to the tune. The text does have a copyright 2000 Nathan Arnold.
