Daddy…..can I call you Father?
Please take control of me,
and call me by name.
Daddy….I want you to stand by me,
You are my friend, my strength, my God.

Though this earthly man, he may fail his child,
Your love is there, for me.
Though the child’s pure heart,
may be crushed, by man
The Father’s heart, will heal.

So Daddy…take me inside of you,
Give me the strength to feel, all of your love.
And Daddy….deliver myself from me,
Restore all my trust, my faith, to you
