Father and Son

I was just a simple boy, 

didn’t know much of anything

‘Til my father sat me down, 

and explained to me everything

He said son, my father was flawed, he obeyed such a selfish deed

But he turned to the grace of God, and his ransomed soul was freed

 

I was just a simple teen, 

growing up just the best I could

‘Til my father sat me down, 

showed me love ’til I understood

He said son, I’m not a perfect man, I don’t know much of anything

But I’m trying the best I can, I work hard so that you can sing

 

Now I’m just a simple man, 

I don’t know much of anything

But someday I’ll sit my son down, 

and explain to him everything

I’ll say son, my father was strong, he loved me more than anything

Now I see how to love like him, and someday you will love like me
