Song background:

I wanted to make a father's day song.  However, after some time trying to compose one, I realized it was a touchy subject for many who are fatherless, divorced or single moms.  I don't want a song that will make them feel sad, but i wanted a song to lift up those father's who are trying their best.  I remember a talk from President Uchdorf titled "In Praise of Those Who Save" and used that as my inspiration.  Regardless of our own situation with father's, all of us can celebrate those dads who are raising their children the best they can in a world where so many fathers aren't.

Lyrics: I am a child of God, I know that he loves me. I used to walk with him, feel of his glory. I had to leave, I don't quite remember, his loving face as he gently whispered. You are my child, I can't go with you, but in my place your father will love you. Darkness may come at times you won't see, keep pushing through, your father will guide you home. And so I came, to this frail existence. In my father's arms, I was so innocent. But life gets hard, I'll find my way, he'll guide me through at times he'll need to say. You are my child you know I love you. I'm here to watch, love and protect you. Darkness will come at times you won't see, keep pushing through I'm here to guide you. We sing in praise of father's who seek to save their precious child, they guard them everyday. A father's love cannot be replaced, one day their child will see God face to face, and hear him whisper. You are my child and I have missed you. He led you home because he loved you too. I heard his prayers, if only you knew, how hard he fought just to bring you home.
