    A true man of God thats what you are

    A father, A friend that's never too far

    Training us up in the way we should go

    Caring and nuturing and watching us grow


    As children sometimes we may go astray

    But you welcome us with open arms

    And continue to pray


    You're always there when we need you

    Not a sign or a moan

    You truly have a heart of flesh

    And not a heart of stone


    Guiding His children to show us the way

    Teaching us how to live...day by day


    The Lord has guided your footsteps for the entire world to see

    But most of all he sent me here so I may learn from thee


    You give much more than you receive

    That's what a true father does I believe


    I'm so glad to have a father that doesn't tell me what he's heard

    But a father that tells me the pure, unadulterated, gospel of the word


    I thank you for all that you have given, yes I really do

    I thank you for a yielded vessel God can really use

    What a beautiful tribute. Your father, and father's like him, are truly golden, and they certainly do exist. Heart warming piece.
