A Father's Prayer

Submitted By: Rebel Kuti

Lord I'm asking for Your help
To raise my newborn son,
Give me strength and guide me
‘Cause I know that You're the one.That sent this angel to me
A little heaven here on earth,
For now I know my place in life...
I'm no longer who comes first.Once I had no answer
As to why it is I'm here,
But when I looked into my baby's eyes....
It all became so clear.This little bit of heaven
Owns me, heart and soul
And it's You that sent him to me
A greater love I'll never know.So take these rugged hands of mine
Help me to understand,
Just what it is I need to do
To raise this little man.Help me build a boy that knows
It's You that holds the key,
To all that heaven holds for us
Show him Your love through me.
