When God decided to make a Father
He needed someone very special
Strong and sturdy too,
To protect all of the family
With great fortitude.
He pondered the majesty of mountains
But, they were of such height,
Then seeing the rough bark of a tree
Thought of softness needed in a guy.
The sun so bright, the moon too dim
He'll need to carefully plan and scheme,
To build and understand
And carry lots of love within.
A gentle heart, a strength to work
Grit to endure, a humorous quirk,
A spring in his step and twinkle in his eye
Muscle to lift and spirit to fly.
So, of His own image, He molded man
And made Himself an eternal friend,
To share His fatherly ways
He put His heart within.
For when a man walks upright with God
He will display His glory too,
And as a masterpiece of faith to live
He is a Father of true attribute.
Thankyou Dad, I love you always
For every treasured moment you have been,
It is hard to put into words
All that is in the heart of me.

The Lord delights in the way of the man
whose steps He has made firm;
though he stumble, he will not fall,
for the Lord upholds him with His hand
