I Felt the Father's Love

There was little need for all the tears from the public's point of view
Just a minor common accident soon he'd be as good as new
But the trauma of the moment clearly touched the father's heart
And the pain of past experience – it was clear that played a part

The tears that flowed so freely over circumstantial pain
Though it seemed so insignificant – just a mishap once again
With a soothing word – a tender touch the pain was wiped away
Oh I think I saw a Father's love today

Though it wasn't much to cry about – soon the pain would all be past
It was clear the Father realized that the memories would last
So a little extra loving care was the order of the day
I could see that simple act meant so much more than words could say

With the passing years the bruises now assume a different form
When hearts are scarred and spirits crushed in the tempest of life's storm
But the little child within knows all about the Father's care
He remembers loving arms and tender words that were always there


(Though) The tears still flow so freely over circumstantial pain
And it seems so insignificant – a life mishap once again
With a soothing word – a tender touch the pain is wiped away
Oh I know I felt the Father's love today
(I'm so sure I felt the Father's love today)
