Father.

He rejoiced in another son,

For I was not the only one;

He gladly led me all the way,

Thank you, Lord, for father alway.

He taught me well day by day,

Guiding me on the right way,

He prayed and wept for me ’tis true;

I thank you, Lord, that father knew.

Though sometimes he was far away,

My love for him did always stay.

He helped me much whene’er he could;

I thank you, Lord, that father would.

He was father and friend indeed,

He was there in joy or need,

He never said ’twas a bother;

I thank you, Lord, for my father.

He still taught, though I was grown,

A wealth of knowledge he had shown,

I would not ask for another;

I thank you, Lord, for my father.

A lot of time he spent with me,

Precious time, and all so free,

We shared and cared for one another;

I thank you, Lord, for my father.
