From my first breath,
You have been there.
And indescribable depths
Of love are shown
To all of us each day.

Your faithfulness is true;
Your Christ-like love, sincere
As you lead our family through
What is unknown
With Christ, our Stay.

When I don’t understand
Nor heed your wise advice,
And decide to go my own way,
Your faithful forgiveness
Does not falter nor sway.

Though I stand on my own
You’ll always be there
To welcome me home.
Dad, by your acts I bear witness
To steadfast love’s display.
