A Man Called Dad




Dad, Mentor and Best Friend


To God be the glory for my father’s love;

I celebrate Father’s Day with this in mind.

I offer all honor and praise to You above

For the rich treasures in my dad that I find.


First and foremost I see his deep Love for You

That You placed within his spirit a long time ago.

His faithful Obedience follows this love so true

Reflecting the fruit of Your Word here below.


His Reverence for life is so dear to his heart

For You have so blessed him with Your reality.

His endless Devotion to You plays a major part

In his constant practices of impartiality.


It’s impossible to put into words what I truly feel

Towards my dad, my mentor, that You did send.

So I leave this with You, Lord, as at Your feet I kneel,

Thanking You for this precious dad. . . my best friend!
