My Father

Music for Children, Submitted Music (2007-2011)

My father’s hands are steady and kind.  They hold me and show me the way.

And when they are gently placed on my head, the fear in my heart goes away.

My father’s eyes are tender and wise.  They twinkle with laughter and fun.

They scatter the sunshine, weep when I’m sad, and rest when the day is done.

Knees which are worn from the years of kneeling to pray fervently.

Feet which have walked many miles, making a path for me.

My father’s heart is turned towards God.  He serves doing all that he can.

Reflecting the love that comes from above, He follows a heavenly plan.
