Faithful Father

by Brian DOerksen

Father I can't explain this kind of love, this kind of grace

I know, I still break your heart and yet you run to welcome me


This is my song of praise to you

For who you are and all that you do

from the moment my life began, you have been faithful

Father, I love the way you hold me close and say my name

I know, when my life is through my heart will find it's home in you


"And I'm still amazed when I think about the day that I returned.

Blinded by my own addictions and grief, I began my journey

expecting rejection, but secretly, secretly hoping for mercy

And while I was still a ways off rehearsing my lines, you saw me

and you ran to me... you ran to ME! And I began to speak and I said

"Father... I've been unfaithful and I am no longer worthy to be called

you son..."..."Welcome home son, I've been waiting for you!

I AM FAITHFUL! And I will always be your faithful father"

This is my song of praise to you

for who you are and all that you do

From the moment the world began

You have been faithful

(Repeat chorus)

You have been faithful, forever faithful...father
