FOR DAD Words and Music by Lawrence Keith Holder I have grown to know you more As the years have seen us through And things I took for granted Are clearer now, and true. We know our fam'ly bond is love Stronger than the world's travail Though tested by the tempest [It's] A bond that will not fail. And the journey leads us on 'Til the day we stand complete Then as brother unto brother As our Lord at last we meet. May these greetings find you well May the blessings never end I am rich beyond compare For in you I have a father ... and a friend.
