The Father’s Child

Today is Father’s Day in the United States. My prayer is that every man knows the Father of the Universe in some way, as the great Father-Creator He is. Enjoy a happy and blessed Father’s Day!

1. The Father sends each precious child
To do a work so great.
He wraps his love in flesh and blood
To bring us to his gate.
The happy, sad, the good and bad
Are nothing in his light.
The Father doesn’t make mistakes;
He sends each precious child.

2. The Father helps his children grow
From long before our birth.
He wraps his love in flesh and blood
To do his will on earth.
The happy, sad, the good and bad
Remind us so we know
The Father doesn’t make mistakes;
He helps his children grow.

3. The Father is alive and well
Each moment that we live.
He wraps his love in flesh and blood
Because we are a gift.
The happy, sad, the good and bad,
And don’t forget to tell
The Father doesn’t make mistakes;
In us, alive and well.

4. The Father sent you as his child
To do a work so great.
He wraps* his love in flesh and blood
To bring you to his gate.
The happy, sad, the good and bad,
Are nothing in his light.
The Father doesn’t make mistakes;
He sent you as his child.

The Father doesn’t make mistakes;
You are his precious child.
You are the Father’s child.

*In the recording I sang “wrapped.” Recording this once was enough, with 2 strumming fingers still wrapped (no pun intended!) together.
