The fathers path


here i stand before you,my head hung low

i fought a good fight,but i hardly ever won


and i faltered on keeping the faith

i faltered more times than one


but when it was all said and done

i still call you father,do you still call

me your son


you forgave me from my sins 2000 tears ago

i wonder if you knew then which way i would go

and i wonder lord about the millions more


they must know that your right here at the door

the time is near it,s just at the door when we will be

in the promiced land for ever more


and the fight lord,well it will finally be done

and i can call you father and you can call me

your son,,,
