My Father - Poem by Betty Ann Tipton

I have a Father in Heaven
Who loves me in every way
He's taught me lots of things in life
He taught me how to pray
With patience He gently guides me
He teaches me right from wrong
When I am tempted to be weak
He helps me to be strong
He chastens me when I need it
He wants the best for me
He's set an example teaching fathers on earth
How to love their children and lead
