THE TEN COMMANDMENTS WRITTEN FOR CHILDREN

The following Ten Commandments were written in poetry for children many years ago to help them to memorize more easily. I pray it will bless you and any child that you might like to learn the Ten Commandments of God.

One day the world will be judged by the Ten Commandments. But the GOOD NEWS for us, who are in Jesus Christ, is that the law has already been kept on our behalf by Jesus in our place. Out of a deep heart of gratitude for what our Lord has accomplished, we do desire to keep the Law,  but realize we do not perfectly keep it every day.  By the grace of God we can repent and be changed. The Ten Commandments are like a school master to teach us right from wrong and to show us that we can't perfectly keep the Law.  We need a Savior. Children need to know this truth today and especially that Jesus fulfilled the Law for them.  It creates a deep appreciation for the finished work of Christ.


  TEN COMMANDMENTS

Have not other God but me
Before no idol bend the knee
Take not the name of God in vain
Do not the Sabbath day profane
Give both thy parents honor due
Be sure that thou no murder do
Abstain from works and deeds unclean
Steal not though thou be poor and mean
Tell no wicked lie nor love it
What is thy neighbor do not covet
