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.

    I really appreciate your providing access to this song and lyrics. I remembered parts, but not all of the words. It will be a great addition to the teaching this Sunday as the children hear that Adam and Eve chose not to obey God. The song speaks volumes to children.

    I needed some of these words for my S.S. class tomorrow… they like to share a song along with their memory verse in front of the congregation at the end of class time, and this was the perfect fit. We are part of a small church plant in Maine. Thank you so much for sharing. The chords are a great addition too!

    My wife & I reared 4 daughters, 4 sons; have w3 GRANDchildren & 3 GreatGRANDchildren – whom all either have learned or will that Children´s Obedience Hymn/Song. My wife, who just retired from El. School (2nd grade) at 71 Memorials Day, 20q8. She added a couple of “Mantras” that their public school allowed:
    Q. How do we obey?
    A. Immediately; Cheerfully; Unconditionally; and Completely.
    1- Immediately means, “The first.
    time – every time.”
    2- Cheerfully means, “With a smile.
    on your lips.”
    3- Unconditionally means, “Without
    any reward – no candy, cookies …
    yes, you’ll get a thumb´s😎👍up!!!
    4- Completely means, “Do it A to Z”
    Told to clean your bedroom,
    make your bed; don´t push
    dirty clothes under your bed.
    ***The OBEDIENCE Childrens´ Song
    ***How Do We Obey
    ***What do those 4 Rules Mean

    Oh thank you R.J. for the “mantra” of the Obedience Song. That is a very multimodal way of instilling this so neglected Godly trait. Thank you again.
