"A FATHER AND A FRIEND"

Lord, I need Your help as each little one grows bigger,
To be just, teaching them how fair You've always been with me,
To be loving, love is what they'll always need.

Chorus one:
'Cause they'll learn to know You by my ways with them.
They're learning how to love and trust by a sample of a
Father and a friend.

Lord, I need Your help as each young one grows older,
To be firm, as the rock that You have been beneath my feet,
To be tender, softening the hardness they will meet.

[Repeat first chorus]

Lord, help me to be more like You, to be more loving than I am.
To gently feed and lead these little lambs.
Each one's a gift from Heaven, so precious in Your sight.
I know I need Your help to guide them right.

Chorus two:
'Cause they'll learn to know You by my ways with them.
They're learning how to love and trust by a sample of a
Father and a friend.

Chorus three:
Oh, they'll learn to know You by my ways with them.
They're learning how to love and trust by a sample of a
Father and a friend. Ohhh!
