[Verse]
    Am                     G
Your children are not your children.
             F                                        G
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself,
            F                  Am
They come through you, but not from you
                G                            Am
And though they're with you, they belong to themselves.

[Verse]
         Am                                 G
You may give them your love, but not your thoughts.
       F                        G
For they have thoughts of their own,
         F                               Am
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
          G                            Am
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams,

[Chorus]
F G Am Am
uuuuh
uuuuh

[Verse]
         Am               G
You may strive to be like them,
      F                        G
but seek not to make them like you.
    F                Am
For life goes, not backward
      G               Am
nor tarries with yesterday.

[Verse]
             Am                     G
You are the bows from which your children,
            F             G
as living arrows are sent forth,
      F                            Am
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
       G                     Am
and He bends you, with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.

[Chorus]
F G Am Am
uuuh
uuuh

          F                     G               Am
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
         F                   G                              Am
as He loves the arrow that flies, He loves all that is is stable,
          F                      G               Am
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness,
                F                   G                                    Am
for even as he loves the arrow that flies, he loves also the bow that is stable
