The heart of a father

Is a shepherd’s touch;

It guides and leads

And it loves very much.

It is strong and courageous

And it always stands firm;

It disciples and it teaches

So the young hearts can learn.

Its priorities are right

As it’s selfless in deeds;

It provides and it nurtures

For desires and needs.

It is warm and so caring

Render with its flock;

It ensures its safety

And that none become lost.

It’s a perfect role model

Raising boys with much strength;

To be wise and mature

And to care at great lengths.

As our Father in Heaven

Shares His mantle with men;

He distributes His nature

So they can represent Him again.

How sweet is God’s heart

As it’s reflected in fathers,

When they fulfil their given roles

Towards their family and others.
