YOU’RE A GOOD, GOOD FATHER (Song Lyrics)

child in the meadow

Chorus
Dearest Father in heaven
You don’t ever make me cry
Tears of sorrow, tears of pain
They’re not from You, I know it’s true
You’re a good, good Father
A good, good Father
You never turn, and say goodbye
You never turn, and say goodbye

Why is this happening
Lord, why is it so
Why does my path, this way, go
I thought it should lead that way
The other way, avoiding paths of woe
But You led me this way
So this way I go

Chorus
Dearest Father in heaven
You don’t ever make me cry
Tears of sorrow, tears of pain
They’re not from You, I know it’s true
You’re a good, good Father
A good, good Father
You never turn, and say goodbye
You never turn, and say goodbye

You hold my hand gently
Wrap Your fingers tight
Hanging on with all my might
I watch You, oh! my Saviour
As You print Your feet on solid ground’s light
Leading me to safety
Always in Your sight

And if I shed any tears
That do not bring You glory
They’re not from You
Not from You

If tears escape
From heaven’s place
They’re tears of joy
That I have a Father
Who has promised
To never leave nor forsake me
Yes, I have a Father
Who has promised
To never leave nor forsake me

I’m so very thankful
You never turn, and say goodbye
And even though they’re not from You
All tears of sadness, dry
