CObedience is the very best way, to show that you be-Dmlieve.(…G)
DmDoing ex-Gactly what the DmLord com-Gmands, doing it happi-Cly.
CAction is the key – do it im-C7mediately, joy you will re-Fceive.
FObedience is the Cvery best way to Gshow that you be-Clieve.


FObedience is the Cvery best way to Gshow that you be-Clieve.


Cwant to live pure we want to live clean.
We want to do our Dmbest.(…G)
DmSweetly sub-Gmitting to Dmauthori-Gty, leaving to God the Crest.
CWalking in the light, keep our C7attitudes right,
On the narrow Fway.
FFor if you believe the CWord you receive,
You Galways will o-Cbey!

    Was looking for this song. In the early 80’s I taught this song to my kids when I taught kindergarten in a Christian School. It goes with day one of our Bible School Program on Obedience. thanks. rj

    Hi Rita, I’m glad it helped improve your lesson! I actually attended a Christian school kindergarten in the early 80’s and I never forgot a couple of the songs I learned there.

    Have known this song a long time, but recently in two different locations, the
    ministers referred to this song or on the subject of “Obedience” I used this
    song years ago with children’s choirs. It’s great for all ages. The message is
    so RIGHT.

    Thank you so much for the Obedience song. I use to sing it to my children but as they got older I didn’t sing it as often and had forgotten it. I want to teach this to my grandchildren! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this song. It was suggested to sing in my children’s church lesson for the Wiseman and the Foolish man. I have never heard this song before. It seems strange though that I have not since I have sung School songs forever.

    I am writing a VBS curriculum on the life of Elijah and one of the themes is obedience. I would love to include this song in the music guide for the curriculum. Would you grant me permission to publish the lyrics and link in the curriculum? Thank you for considering this and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Hi Amanda, I didn’t write any of these songs. It may be by Ron & Shelly Hamilton as was mentioned elsewhere on the web, but I don’t have any confirmation of this. I think you would be fine to reproduce this because it’s not really claimed by anyone when I search for it. Links to this site are always appreciated.
