  1. This Gift

From the album Letting Go

Lyrics

first steps walking
first words talking
those times i don’t recall
every stage at
every play i know
you were there for them all
and i know sometimes
people thank you
for God’s gift you showed they had
but this time
i want to thank you
for this gift of being my dad
as i got older
if dreams would smolder
you helped bring back the fire
to warm my cold night
through the firelight
my spark of God flew higher
i know sometimes
people thank you
for God’s gift you showed they had
but this time
i want to thank you
for this gift of being my dad
i know as time goes by
you will be watching
from my first steps
to my last
but they won’t be our last
because we together
walk forever
now from future into past
so i love that
people thank you
for God’s gift you showed they had
but this time
i want to thank you
i want to thank you
i love you dad
