I Knew My Father Knew


I Knew My Father Knew

Music for Men, Submitted Music (2007-2011)

I watched him with the eager eyes of childhood day by day,
The way he lived said more to me than words could ever say,
The simple truths he taught me would endure my whole life through,
And long before I knew them for myself, I knew my Father knew.

I borrowed his unfailing faith, I trusted in his love,
I counted on his courage when my own was not enough,
I turned to him for counsel through the perils of my youth,
And even when I doubted still I knew, I knew my father knew

I saw his quiet witness in the tears he could not hide,
As he taught me of the Savior, how He lived and how He died,

I felt the Holy Spirit as he testified of truth
And I began to understand the things I knew my father knew,
I have found my father’s faith, deep within my soul,

A legacy I’ll treasure through eternities untold,
And ev’ry thing I try to be, and ev’rything I do
I do because I learned to know and love the things I knew my father knew.
