Father full of love for son,
shows him how life is won.

Father shapes his lump of clay,
shows him how to work and play.

Father loves words and books,
shows him his reading nook.

Father spends time with son,
shows him life from sun to sun.

Father sleeps sound at night,
shows him peace from living right.

Father tells of wounds of heart,
shows him how to heal each part.

Father shares faith in God,
shows him where saints have trod.

Father shares when he's failed,
shows him how victory's scaled.

Father points to open road,
shows him how the road is strode.

Father opens wide the world.
shows him how life's unfurled.

Father loves the son's mother,
shows her honor above all others.

Father blesses his son,
shows him how to bless each one.

Father fades from all his days,
shows him how to live his ways.
