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

ABBA FATHER, ABBA FATHER

cross jesus wood

Abba Father, Abba Father
Only You can breathe sweet life into me
Abba Father, Abba Father
Only You can fill my heart with pure love

Abba Father, Abba Father
Only You can clothe me with righteousness
Abba Father, Abba Father
Only You can bring me into the light

You found me when I thought I was hidden
You found me in my darkest hour, so lost
You found me and wrapped Your arms around me
And told me You would never let me go

Found me and showed me the way to Your heart
Found me and led me to Your precious Son
Found me and filled me with eternal love
And now all within cries Abba Father, You won
