I’m So Glad To Be Your Child

As I look at you with adoration
I think of your Godly qualities
I just smile
You’re such a wonderful father
And I’m so glad to be your child

You’ve played many roles
Father, brother, uncle, son
And I’m sure the whole family will agree
That you’ve played these roles so importantly
As you’ve impacted our lives so positively

Usually kids will give parents a reason to boast
It ‘s the opposite this time
I want everyone to know
You’re such a wonderful father
And I’m so glad to be your child.

 

Written in honor of my earthly father who adhered to the heavenly Father’s words in Ephesians 6:4 that says “And ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord”.  And in Proverbs 22:6  that says “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
