FATHER'S TOUCH

 

(Eli Seals)

 

Early to rise, late to bed

Your calloused hands, you kept us fed

Taught us to swim and how to work

No matter come what may, we went to church

We sat up straight, we bowed and prayed

You taught us all the things we should

and shouldn't say

 

Thank you father, for all you've done

When the world pushed me down,

you were there to fall back on

Thank you father, for your love

I never listened, you never gave up

Thank you for loving me so much

And showing me the strength

and power of a father's touch

 

You made the moon, the earth and stars

Created life, now here we are

You made the lame walk again

Took the darkness from the blind

and let the light shine in

Of all the gifts that you could give

You gave your son, so we could live

 

Thank you father, for all you've done

When the world pushed me down,

you were there to fall back on

Thank you father, for your love

I never listened, you never gave up

Thank you for loving me so much

And showing me the strength

and power of a father's touch

 

Thank you for loving me so much

And showing me the strength

and power of a father's touch
