~ Daddy's Hands ~




~ Daddy’s Hands ~

I remember Daddy's hands
Folded silently in prayer
And reaching out to hold me
When I had a nightmare
You could read quite a story
In the callouses and lines
Years of work and worry
Had left their mark behind

I remember Daddy's hands
How they held my Mama tight
And patted my back
For something done right
There are things that I've forgotten
That I loved about the man
But, I'll always remember
The love in Daddy's hands

Daddy's hands
Were soft and kind
When I was cryin'
Daddy's hands
Were hard as steel
When I'd done wrong
Daddy's hands
Weren't always gentle
But I've come to understand
There was always love
In Daddy's hands

I remember Daddy's hands
Working 'til they bled
Sacrificed unselfishly
Just to keep us all fed
If I could do things over
I'd live my life again
And never take for granted
The love in Daddy's hands

Daddy's hands
Were soft and kind
When I was cryin'
Daddy's hands
Were hard as steel
When I'd done wrong
Daddy's hands
Weren't always gentle
But, I've come to understand
There was always love
In Daddy's hands

Daddy's hands
Were soft and kind
When I was cryin'
Daddy's hands
Were hard as steel
When I'd done wrong
Daddy's hands
Weren't always gentle
But, I've come to understand
There was always love
In Daddy's hands . . .
