I remember my teenage years as a lonely boy in a church compound, standing outside
the congregational crowd
Unwanted and unclaimed, a face without a name,
almost every night I’d cry and cry
Asking the questions why, mom and dad would leave
this lonely son to grieve
The deserts of my years, they were watered with my
But when I met you face to Face, You wiped away my

There’s a little child inside this man, who still does
not understand
Why momma had to die, she didn’t say goodbye
Daddy left without a trace, I never even saw his face
Was I to blame, I still feel the pain of hot shattered
like glass that cut my soul to pieces
I never thought I would love again, until I met you

You’re the Father I never had
And Your love never changes, through the good
times and the bad
You’re the Father I never had
Just hold me in Your arms and heal me of the past
and be the Father I never had

Although I was rejected, You were my friend
Although I was abandoned, Your love drew me in…..
Oh Your love drew me in..
