Daddy, set your eyes on me
and surely you will see,
How very much I need for you
to love and pray for me.
As time passes and I grow,
I’ll need you even more,
To show me God’s love and grace
and what my life is for.
Teach me to be kind and loving,
sharing and forgiving,
Show me through your acts of love
that Christ’s joy makes life worth living.
The years will pass by quickly
and one day I’ll be grown,
I will pass what you have taught me
onto children of my own.
Hold me always in your thought,
keep me in your prayers,
And surely I’ll always remember,
that for me my daddy cares.
