"As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him." - Psalm 18:30


A wonderful family sat on a wall.
This wonderful family was having a ball!
They worshiped the Lord and served in the church -
Always faithful in every good work.

A wonderful family sat on a wall.
This wonderful family was having it all!
They chased after pleasure, money, and fame,
Pretending that life was all a big game.

A struggling family sat on a wall.
But by and by they had a great fall.
All the king's horses, and all the king's men,
Couldn't put this family back together again.

This fractured family soon drifted apart;
Never returning to their wonderful start.
Oh, they tried self-help books and positive thinking,
They even tried therapy but only kept sinking.

"Back to the Bible," the preacher would say,
"Heal your broken family, today!"
"Spend some time in study and prayer.
"Your fractured family, begin to repair!

So they studied the Word together each day,
And made some time for the family to pray.
They served God in the church and began to recover.
Soon the pleasures of life became God and each other.

The wonderful family is back on the wall,
Bound with love to avoid a great fall.
They don't need the king's horses,
Nor the king's men,
For God has put them back together again!
