From the recording In times of despair...

Lyrics

Verse 1:
My friend
And my pal
You are my star
And my champ
You are the one who brought me up
You are the one who gave me life
You're the one who taught the meaning of love
You are a gift of my life
You covered me whole with your love
You are the greatest, dad!

I miss your loving arms
The embrace that held me
I miss the moments spent with you

I know you miss me too
You’re safe with Him there
I just can’t wait to see you too


Verse 2:
My chief
My counsellor
My comforter
And my strength
You gave me strength to rise
You held me all the while
As I climbed up high, you delighted with me
Happy for me like no one
Excited as if you have won
You are the greatest, dad!

You taught me everything
all I know is from you
When I fell you were there for me

When I was wrong you showed
the right way forward
I miss the love you had on me

Outro:
My friend
And my pal
You are my star
And my champ
You are the one who brought me up
You are the one who gave me life
You're the one who taught the meaning of love
You are a gift of my life
You covered me whole with your love

You are the greatest, dad! (x 4)
