The Family Is of God

Verse 1

Our Father has a family. It’s me!
It’s you, all others too: we are His children.
He sent each one of us to earth, through birth,
To live and learn here in fam’lies.

Chorus

God gave us families to help us become what He wants us to be—
This is how He shares His love, for the fam’ly is of God.

Verse 2

A father’s place is to preside, provide,
To love and teach the gospel to his children.
A father leads in fam’ly prayer to share
Their love for Father in Heaven.

Chorus *

God gave us families to help us become what He wants us to be—
This is how He shares His love, for the fam’ly is of God.

Verse 3

A mother’s purpose is to care, prepare,
To nurture and to strengthen all her children.
She teaches children to obey, to pray,
To love and serve in the fam’ly.

Chorus *

God gave us families to help us become what He wants us to be—
This is how He shares His love, for the fam’ly is of God.

Verse 4

I’ll love and serve my family and be
A good example to each fam’ly member.
And when I am a mom or dad, so glad,
I’ll help my fam’ly remember:

Chorus *

God gave us families to help us become what He wants us to be—
This is how He shares His love, for the fam’ly is of God.
