I pray that you will grow so strong
and be a helping hand
to everyone that is in need
Please be a gentle man
Have eyes that look for good in others
and words that are so wise
Look deep inside and love your soul
True love grows from deep inside.
Don’t lie to get out of trouble
your character is your proof
Owe up to every decision made
Your value is your truth.
Don’t cheat no matter what you do
I want that to stand out
When you trust from deep inside
you love without that doubt.
If you’re unhappy, tell the truth,
and voice what you must say
Don’t hold it in and stew inside
God tells us all to pray.
When you search for answers, my son
don’t listen to your head
Read the Bible every day
It is your daily bread.
God gives us everything we need
In his all-telling Book
When you need wisdom or guidance
He is there, just take a look.
Praise and love the Lord on high
Raise a strong family
you are the head of your house
this is a great responsibility.
Be strong when others are so weak
Be that rock they can turn to
love your wife and children
Guide them gently to be true.
Work hard at everything you do
don’t ever skip a step
Do all things methodically
Make sure you always prep.
Be proud of working hard
And have a steady hand
Bring others up in confidence
and you will be a powerful man.
Don’t lack in compliments
Speak with God’s own words
the way you talk will show yourself
and your voice will always be heard.
I pray that you will laugh a lot
when you speak praise His name
I am so, so proud of you
True joy comes without any shame.
These words come from my heart
you are my son, my love is true
I pray your blessed and live in joy
And this be done your whole life through
