DRead your Bible, pray every day,
APray every day, Gpray every Dday.
DRead your Bible, pray every day,
And you’ll Dgrow, Agrow, Dgrow.
And you’ll Dgrow, Ggrow, Dgrow.
And you’ll Ggrow, grow, Dgrow.
DRead your Bible, pray everyday,
And you’ll Dgrow, Agrow, Dgrow.

DDon’t read your Bible, forget to pray,
AForget to pray, Gforget to Dpray.
DDon’t read your Bible, forget to pray,
And you’ll Dshrink, Ashrink, Dshrink.
And you’ll Dshrink, Gshrink, Dshrink.
And you’ll Gshrink, shrink, Dshrink.
DDon’t read your Bible, forget to pray,
And you’ll Dshrink, Ashrink, Dshrink.

    Helpful site for lyrics and looking at guitar chords, but for some reason I couldn’t get it to actually print the lyrics with the guitar chords. : (

    Remember singing this in Belgium in the 70s. Used to do it in Dutch, then French then English. Only the first verse and we sang “if you want to grow” not “and you’ll grow grow grow”.

    Never seen that shrink verse before and to be honest I don’t like it.
    From memory the Dutch and French words are:

    Lees je bijbel
    bid elke dag…….
    Als je groeien wilt.

    Lis ta bible,
    pris chaque jour….
    Si tu veut grandir.

    How to pronounce the Dutch version:
    Lace yer baybel
    Bid elker dach (ch as in Scottish loch)
    Uls yer groo-yern wilt.
