This is a nice little poem to help remember the ten commandments. It also makes great copy-work! 🙂
A Creed to Live By
from the McGuffey Reader
“Above all else love God alone;
Bow down to neither wood nor stone.
God’s name refuse to take in vain;
The sabbath rest with care maintain.
Respect your parents all your days;
Hold sacred human life always.
Be loyal to your chosen mate.
Steal nothing, neither small nor great.
Report, with truth, your neighbor’s deed;
And rid your mind of selfish greed.”
