I believe in my own family
In their character and strong fiber;
I believe that with God’s help
Our future is much brighter.
I believe in prayerful dreaming
That no matter come what may;
If we work and pray together
God will lead us along life’s way.
I believe in loyal persistence
Never bowing to selfish prods;
I believe that faith, hope and love
Will bring us Home to God.
