We Appreciate Our Fathers
We appreciate our fathers
And everything they do
And though we don't oft show it
Our gratitude is true.
They teach us how to walk alone
When we are very small
Then all through life just where to walk
And help us when we fall.
They also teach us little things
Like how to hook a worm.
But when we fail to meet their rules
They can be very stern.
"It's for your good" they often say.
We know that they are right.
And when we learn from our mistakes
They're pleased with much delight.
Our Father God does much the same
To teach us all our days.
And how it thrills His heart to see
His children learn His ways.
What can we do to show our love
For everything He's done?
Live our lives each day for Him
And, bring others to His Son.
