    Fathers

    Lovingly

    1. The father of our home leads our family

    With wisdom’s light in all that’s right;

    My father’s good to me.

    [Chorus]

    Fathers are so special with a very special love.

    They watch us and protect us.

    They guide us and direct us

    Back to our home above.

    2. The father of our ward tends with loving care

    Each member’s needs with kindly deeds;

    Our bishop’s always there.

    [Chorus]

    Fathers are so special with a very special love.

    They watch us and protect us.

    They guide us and direct us

    Back to our home above.

    3. And now we’ll sing great praise and rev’rently recall

    The Holy One who gave his Son,

    The Father of us all.

    [Chorus]

    Fathers are so special with a very special love.

    They watch us and protect us.

    They guide us and direct us

    Back to our home above.
