Lyrics

  1. 1. The father of our home leads our family
    With wisdom's light in all that's right;
    My father's good to me.
  2. Fathers are so special with a very special love.
    They watch us and protect us.
    They guide us and direct us
    Back to our home above.
  3. 2. The father of our ward tends with loving care
    Each member's needs with kindly deeds;
    Our bishop's always there.
  4. 3. And now we'll sing great praise and rev'rently recall
    The Holy One who gave his Son,
    The Father of us all.
