  1. 1. Since we could crawl, our fam’ly studied it all.

    Even though small, we understood what we were learning.

    Father would read to me before I would sleep.

    Now I am taller; I still keep up with that routine.

    And when I’m by myself, I take that book down off the shelf.

    I remember what the scripture said that I would need so I could stand firm.

    Study makes you strong,

    Just like a tree that’s planted by a river stream.

    Study makes you strong.

    Your leaves just won’t dry out and ev’rything succeeds.

    Study makes you strong,

    Just like a tree that’s planted its roots down deep.

    Study makes you strong.

    You’ll grow so big and tall there’s nothing you won’t see.

  2. 2. What will I say when a big chance comes my way?

    What will my classmates say if I don’t follow with them?

    All of the information’s here on display.

    I’m not afraid, because I learned this as an infant.

    ’Cause when I’m by myself, I take that book down off the shelf.

    I remember what the scripture said that I would need so I could stand firm.

    Ev’ry word that’s helping me

    Could contain the very key

    To offer just the help and encouragement somebody needs.
