1. You were there when I needed you to guide me.
When I stumbled, you were near to take my hand.
You were proud ev’ry time you walked beside me,
In a thousand ways I didn’t understand.
Oh, Dad, I never thought that I would ever find the words
to thank you for the many things you’ve done.
I want to say “I love you” from the bottom of my heart,
And I’m glad that God chose me to be your son.
2. (There were) times when I didn’t know the reasons,
When you stood by me and never asked me why.
As our moments melted softly into seasons,
I learn’d that I had wings enough to fly.
Yes, I’m glad that God chose me to be your son.
