Now that you’re a father,
There’s some things that you should know,
The way you walk from now on
Is the way your child will go!
And he’s going to follow you
To find out just what is the best
And what is good and true.
His little eyes will watch you
In everything you do.
His little hands will copy
And his feet will follow you;
You’re his brave and fearless hero,
The one he loves the best.
Stand firm and strong, please, daddy,
‘Cause he’ll put you to the test.
He’ll make you feel so happy—
Your heart will burst with pride,
And deep down you’ll be feeling
A love you cannot hide;
Then sometimes he’ll be naughty
And you’ll have to spank him too,
But even then he’ll trust you
‘Cause he so depends on you.
His mind is very active,
And his memory’s extra good,
So be careful how you teach him
To do the things he should.
You’re setting an example
In all you say and do,
For the little boy who’s waiting
To grow up to be like you.
By G. Gallon
We best oppose error by promoting a solid knowledge of the Word of Truth.
~ Matthew Henry
A father’s hands are gentle,
A father’s hands are strong,
Guiding, helping, teaching,
Showing right from wrong.
The protection of a father’s hand
And the love that’s in their touch
Give the feeling of security
A child needs so much.
And although they may be rough from toil,
A child still understands
How much of life’s true beauty
Comes from a father’s hands.
