Thank You dear Father in heaven,
For the blessings You've given us;
Thank You for the ones that do care,
It's in Your ways that he must trust.
He will rejoice in the knowing,
All his needs God's family heeds;
For loving enough to be there,
Caring and love are priceless seeds.
We praise You for Your Son, Jesus,
Our Lord knows love of family;
We look forward to His presence,
Thank You God for hearing our plea.
Still some don't understand true love,
A love that knows no boundaries;
For blood is thicker than water,
Though thinned by false priorities.
But You in all of Your wisdom,
Using Your power and insight;
Through Your extended family,
You know just how to make things right.
Now we pray that when the day comes,
The time comes to reciprocate;
You fill our hearts with only love,
Don't let us even hesitate.
For it isn't a child's fault,
Fathers and Mothers must teach love;
And the meaning of right from wrong,
The way that You care from above.
Just another of life's lessons,
One we'd rather the boy not learn;
Yet because of unloving hearts,
Once again the message will burn.
But because of who You are,
Your family will be there;
Just to help him celebrate,
Just to let him know you care.
