Go to the Ant Are you responsible? Do you ever do a job without being told to? Or are you the lazy kind, and your mother and your father always have to scold you? Well, God in His wisdom tells us where to go To one of his smallest of teachers If you want to be a responsible person, then learn how from one of His creatures Chorus: Go to the Ant! Observe her - see how she works all day And she doesn't even have a captain to tell her what to do, but she works hard anyway Go to the Ant! and listen Tell me, does she complain? She is God's illustration of organization - Go to the Ant! Are you the thoughtful kind? Do you ever ask what you can do to help your mother? Or do you complain and whine And you lie around and hope that she will ask your brother? Well, there was a poor irresponsible sluggard, who slept when there was work to be done But too late he realized his foolish behavior And poverty hit him like a man with gun! Chorus: Go to the Ant! Oh sluggard See how she works all day! And she doesn't even have a captain to tell her what to do, but she works hard anyway! Go to the Ant, and listen Tell me, does she complain? God made her, now you imitate her - Go to the Ant! © 1989 Judy Rogers

We will sing unto the Lord! Oh blessed is the man who delights in His commands! For mighty will his children be forevermore! For mighty will his children be forevermore! © 1989 Judy Rogers

The Tongue 03:25
He said that you said that I said that he was a liar But what he said that you said that I said, it just isn't so! Can't you see - that the tongue can destroy like a fire When we whisper and spread around gossip wherever we go? Oh, the tongue - it can cut like a knife! Oh, the tongue can ruin an innocent life Stop! Think about, think about the way that you say the things that you say Oh, the tongue can encourage a friend Or the tongue can cause a friendship to end What will you say today? What will you say today? - with your tongue A forest can burn to the ground when a fire is started It begins with a very small spark, then grows to a flame Oh, the tongue be just like a fire, unguarded It has power to bring about good, or cause trouble and pain. Oh, the tongue - it can cut like a knife! Oh, the tongue can ruin an innocent life Stop! Think about, think about the way that you say the things that you say Oh, the tongue can encourage a friend Or the tongue can cause a friendship to end, What will you say today? What will you say today? - with your tongue

The School of the Fool There was a young man I don't remember his name All I remember is he thought that life was a game He only followed his own opinions He loved to break every rule He was a first class, A+ student In the school of a fool! He was his best friend, he was his worst enemy And there was nothin' that he took seriously He mocked his teachers, he laughed at learnin' He thought that lyin' was cool! He was a first class, A+ student, in the school of a fool! He was a fool - he was not wise - he played the fool - he paid the price He had a temper and he would let it explode If he was angry, you can be sure that it showed Whenever anyone tried to help him, He always treated them cruelly He was a first class, A+ student, in the school of a fool! He was a fool - he was not wise - he played the fool - he paid the price So pay attention, and learn a lesson, my friend! This foolish young man came to a terrible end You see it's wise guys who are rewarded, so just remember this rule: Don't be a first class, A+ student, in the school of a fool! He was a fool - he was not wise - he played the fool - he payed the price Don't be a fool - be wise! Be wise! You play the fool - you'll pay the price Don't be a fool - be wise! Be wise! You play the fool - you'll pay the price… © 1989 Judy Rogers

Listen My Son Listen, my son to the words that I say Keep all I tell you within your heart If you will search after wisdom as gold, many hidden treasures will unfold My father taught me when I was just a boy, saying, "Follow the wise way, and you will have great joy!" Now I am telling those same words to you, following the Word of God so true. Daddy, I know you love me Thank you for taking the time To lead my feet in the right way So maybe someday to my little boy I will say… Listen, my son to the words that I say Keep all I tell you within your heart If you will search after wisdom as gold, Many hidden treasures will unfold. © 1989 Judy Rogers

Out of the Mouths of Children Out of the mouths of children and tiny nursing babes From the lips of the little ones, God has ordained His praise! He has ordained His praise because of His enemies Lord, give our children a heart to know You Let their song silence the foe! Oh, Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth! When I consider your heavens…the work of Your hands, what is man that you care for him? You made man a little lower than the angels Put all things under his feet Made him ruler over all of Your creation His children Your foes to defeat Out of the mouths of children and tiny nursing babes From the lips of the little ones, God has ordained His praise! He has ordained His praise because of His enemies Lord, give our children a heart to know You Let their song silence the foe! When children came to Jesus, shouting "Hosanna!" and bringing their praise…Hosanna!… The priests indignantly tried to send them away, but Jesus said, "Have you not read?" Out of the mouths of children and tiny nursing babes From the lips of the little ones, God has ordained His praise! He has ordained His praise because of His enemies Lord, give our children a heart to know You Let their song silence the foe! Lord, give our children a heart to know You Let their song silence the foe! "Hosanna, Hosanna, our praises we bring to Jesus, our Prophet, our priest and our King!" © 1989 Judy Rogers

There are six things - even seven, that the Lord hates - things He cannot stand! Proud looking eyes A lying tongue Hands that shed innocent blood A heart that thinks of wicked things to do And feet that run to evil, too Anyone who loves to lie about others And the one who causes trouble with his brothers God is love - we know that's true But God hates things that we should hate too Like proud looking eyes A lying tongue Hands that shed innocent blood A heart that thinks of wicked things to do And feet that run to evil, too Anyone who loves to lie about others And the one who causes trouble with his brothers There are six things - even seven, that the Lord hates - things He cannot stand! Proud looking eyes A lying tongue Hands that shed innocent blood A heart that thinks of wicked things to do And feet that run to evil, too Anyone who loves to lie about others And the one who causes trouble with his brothers © 1989 Judy Rogers

Isabelle is a Pig Isabelle is a pig with a ring in her snout You can dress Izzy up but you can't take her out She will jump in the middle of a big mud puddle 'cause Isabelle is a pig! Now a pretty little girl when her temper shows, looks like a pig with a ring her nose All the cute little ribbons and ruffles and rings look silly when you do them foolish things! You can dress up a pig but you can't take her out With a bright gold ring in her pink pig snout She will jump in the middle of a big mud puddle 'cause a pig is a pig is a pig. Now, pretty little girls when they cry and pout, look like Izzy with a ring in her snout All the buttons and bows and curls and lace, don't look pretty with a grumpy face! You can dress up a pig but you can't take her out With a bright gold ring in her pink pig snout She will jump in the middle of a big mud puddle 'cause a pig is a pig is a pig. So be a little girl who loves to obey Listen to your parents everyday Don't be like a pig who wallows in the mud What she wears can make what she does look good! Isabelle is a pig with a ring in her snout You can dress Izzy up but you can't take her out She will jump in the middle of a big mud puddle 'cause Isabelle is a pig! © 1989 Judy Rogers

Talk To Me 02:55
Talk to Me My mother always talks with me I love to hear her voice; She tells me wonderful things of God that make my heart rejoice! It doesn't matter if we're home or riding in the car, or on a sunny day when we go for a walk It may be early in the morning or before I go to bed She always takes the time to talk to me Talk to me…show me that you care! Talk to me…listen to what I say! Talk to me…there's so much we can share! I know you love me when you talk to me My father comes home from work at night and even though he is very tired He reads the Bible and we talk it out, and he closes the day with prayer It doesn't matter if we're home or riding in the car, or on a sunny day when we go for a walk It may be early in the morning or before I go to bed He always takes the time to talk to me Talk to me…show me that you care! Talk to me…listen to what I say! Talk to me…there's so much we can share! I know you love me when you talk to me Talk to me…show me that you care! Talk to me…listen to what I say! Talk to me…there's so much we can share! I know you love me when you talk to me I know you love me when you talk to me © 1989 Judy Rogers

Trust in the Lord Trust in the Lord with all your heart Don't trust your own heart - your own understanding In all your ways acknowledge Him He will direct your paths, show you the way Oh, don't be wise in your own eyes, fear God and turn away - turn away from evil For fearing God, all other fears will disappear when you are trusting in the Lord You say you're troubled 'cause you cannot see the road ahead You're looking through a glass that darkly veils your sight You feel alone and disappointed 'cause your life's not like you want it Look to Jesus - He will take you through the night Trust in the Lord with all your heart Don't trust your own heart - your own understanding In all your ways acknowledge Him He will direct your paths, show you the way Don't forsake the godly teachings of your childhood They will prolong your life and bring prosperity Keep love and faithfulness within your heart, and never cause them to depart For keeping His commands will set you free! Trust in the Lord with all your heart Don't trust your own heart - your own understanding In all your ways acknowledge Him He will direct your paths, show you the way He will direct your paths, show you the way He will direct your paths, show you the way © 1989 Judy Rogers
