Father — our role model,

Who sets a good example

For us to follow and emulate.

When we’re down and troubled,

You’re there to lend a hand.

You cheer us up and brighten our day,

You comfort us and give us company,

And inspire us with your life story.

You guide us and strengthen us,

Protect us from worries and anxieties,

Teach us life’s wonders and mysteries,

Life’s complexities and uncertainties,

Changes and challenges…

Father, we thank you

For the life and love, joy and patience

You share with us each and every day

And the support you provide us

Into our home, our family.

Happy Father’s Day!
