The old paths

I liked the old paths, when

Moms were at home.

Dads were at work.

Brothers went into the army.

And sisters got married BEFORE having children!

.

Crime did not pay;

Hard work did;

And people knew the difference.

.

Moms could cook;

Dads would work;

Children would behave.

.

Husbands were loving;

Wives were supportive;

And children were polite.

.

Women wore the jewelry;

And Men wore the pants.

.

Women looked like ladies;

Men looked like gentlemen;

And children looked decent.

.

People loved the truth,

And hated a lie.

.

They came to church to get IN,

Not to get OUT!

.

Hymns sounded Godly;

Sermons sounded helpful;

Rejoicing sounded normal;

And crying sounded sincere.

.

Cursing was wicked;

Drugs were for illness.

.

The flag was honored;

America was beautiful;

And God was welcome!

.

We read the Bible in public;

Prayed in school;

And preached from house to house.

.

I still like the old paths the best!
