FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS

 

HERE I AM WAKING UP ANOTHER MORNING

NOT EXACTLY SURE OF WHAT I SHOULD BE DOING.

SO LAST NIGHT I KNEELED DOWN BESIDE MY BED, LOW

CAUSE I WAS TOLD THAT IF ANYBODY, YOU’D KNOW.

 

SO WHATS THE PLAN, PURPOSE, MEANING OF MY LIFE GOD,

AM I SUPPOSE TO LIVE EVERY DAY TRYING TO DODGE 

A BULLET, A BULLY, A SEX OFFENDER GONE WILD 

SAYS HE’S TWELVE – BUT HE’S A 40 YEAR OLD PEDOPHILE.

 

YOUR WORD SAID YOU’RE A FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS

AND YOU NUTURE ME WITH LOVE AND TENDER KINDNESS

IF I WALK UPRIGHT AND FOLLOW YOU THRU EVERY TEST

YOUR LOVE WITH OVER SHADOW ME WITH GREATNESS!

 

SO HERE I AM ABOUT TO LEAVE THE NEST AND MOMMA’S CARE

TO GO INTO THE WORLD – I MUST ADMIT – I’M KINDA SCARED

WITHOUT MY FATHER IM NOT SURE IF I CAN BE A MAN

BUT FOR MY MOMMA I JUST GOT TO TRY THE  BEST I CAN

 

AND THAT’S THE REASON I KEEP STRIVING TO DO WELL IN SCHOOL

ALTHOUGH THE STUFF THEY TEACH, I DON’T THINK IM GONE EVEN USE

CHEMITRY, POETRY, GEOMETRY JUST MAKES ME SICK

AND HOW EXACTLY ARE THESE SUBJECTS GONNA MAKE ME RICH?

 BUT………

 

YOUR WORD SAID YOU’RE A FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS

AND YOU NUTURE ME WITH LOVE AND TENDER KINDNESS

IF I WALK UPRIGHT AND FOLLOW YOU THRU EVERY TEST

YOUR LOVE WITH OVER SHADOW ME WITH GREATNESS!

 

SO HERE I AM AT THE BREAK OF A NEW DAWNING

SEEKING YOU AS TO WHERE I SHOULD BE GOING

AS MY CREATOR YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’VE PLACED INSIDE OF ME

AND ONLY YOU CAN TELL ME WHAT I AM SUPPOSED TO BE.

 

WAS I CREATED WITH SOMETHING UNIQUE IN MIND GOD

OR SOMETHING GENERAL LIKE A REGULAR BLUE COLLAR JOB 

LIKE A TEACHER, A PREACHER, A LAWYER FOR THE COMMON MAN

 OR SOMETHING THAT’S CONNECTED TO A TRULY LARGER PLAN. CAUSE……………

 

YOUR WORD SAID YOU’RE A FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS

AND YOU NUTURE ME WITH LOVE AND TENDER KINDNESS

IF I WALK UPRIGHT AND FOLLOW YOU THRU EVERY TEST

YOUR LOVE WITH OVER SHADOW ME WITH GREATNESS!
