Lyrics: My Daddy's hands were big and soft as he blessed me.
He gave to me my earthly name and blessings heavenly.
My Daddy's hands work hard all day to provide for me
But I like most my Daddy's hands to hold me on his knee.
That's why I love my Daddy. I know he loves me too.
We both love Heavenly Father and love His gospel true.

My Daddy's hands were safe and strong as he baptized me
and laid his hands upon my head with authority.
My Daddy's hands are gently place upon me when I'm ill
I know that when he prays for me I will soon be well.
My Daddy's hands are big and strong, rough but gentle too,
for after he's worked hard all day he does things we like to do.
My Daddy's hands are firm but kind when I disobey.
He teaches God's great plan to me and guides me on my way.
