Snuffy parlour ballad ending - Safe in my Father's Arms (7) RE: parlour ballad ending - Safe in my Father's Arms 06 Sep 19


Is this any good?

In my Fatherís arms I was lifted high
Close to His heart I could touch the sky
For dad was like God and could silence waves roar
And tame all my fears on oceanís shore
For nothing could touch me or cause me harm
As a child I was safe in my Fatherís arms.

From my Fatherís arms the years brought a day
When far from His heart I wandered away
Dad was not God but just the old man
I mocked at his wisdom and questioned his plan
A proud adolescent with a mind of his own
My Fatherís arms Iíd completely outgrown.

To my Fatherís arms born-again I returned
Back to His heart from the wilderness learned
That pierís weathered crosses were moments He bore
My sea-tossed rebellion when He loved me more
For now Iím a father, heís not God or old man
In my Fatherís arms He became my best friend.
