Be Patient Song – Patience Leads to Happiness

In my life I realize that when I am patient I am happier and less stressed out.  Being impatient comes in all forms, whether it is not getting what you want right now, frustration over the children being a little stubborn or things not turning out your way.

When I was a little girl we had a performance in school.  My class had to do the “Be Patient” song.

I sometimes still sing this song in my head when I feel myself becoming impatient about my life, a situation or with my kids.  I have even passed it on to my boys.

I was singing the Patient Song in my head in this picture.

The song goes as follows:

“Be patient, be patient, don’t be in such a hurry
When you get impatient, you only start to worry
Remember, remember, that God is patient too
And think of all the times when others had to wait for you.”

I hope you have a fabulous, happy and patient day today!

  5. I am a mother of 5 ranging from 20 to 40 years, and now a grandmother of 5. I sang that song to myself and taught it to my children. I now sing it to my grand children. I wish I could find the tape or find the author. Does anyone remember who is the author or does anyone have a copy? Thank you so much for the posting.

    • Hi! Thank you for reading my post. It’s amazing how that simple song can just stick to you. I bet you my kids will also be passing it on to their kids.

      I know what you mean about finding a real recording and the author. You can see kind of renditions on it in Youtube.

      Thanks for reading again.

      Cheers,
      Louise
