God took the strength of a mountain/ The majesty of a tree The warmth of a summer sun/The calm of a quiet sea The generous soul of nature/The comforting arm of night The wisdom of the ages/The power of eagle’s flight The joy of a morning spring/The faith of a mustard seed The patience of eternity/The depth of a family need Then God combines these qualities/When there was nothing more to add, He knew his masterpiece was complete And so, He called it - Dad
