Dad is destiny!


Dad is destiny! Yes, I know he is my protector
God made him to protect his offspring
A warrior who keeps danger away
He fights for his own against evil
With dad I have a destiny

Dad is destiny! Yes, I know he is my prophet
God made him to prophesy to his clan
A speaker of hope to keeps despair away
He speaks the destiny of his own against confusion
With dad I have a destiny

Dad is destiny! Yes, I know he is my provider
God made him to sustain what is named after him
A provider of vision to direct those he names
He supplies for his name against disgrace
With dad I have a destiny

Dad is destiny! Yes, I know he is my priest
God made him to intercede for his congregation
A preacher of values to keep corruption away
He intercedes for his family against the accuser
With dad I have a destiny

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
