With his hands, he built our home and fixed all the broken things. Dad's hands gave generously, served humbly, and loved mom tenderly, unselfishly, completely, unendingly.
With his hand, Dad held me when I was small, steadied me when I stumbled, and guided me in the right direction. When I needed help, I could always count on Dad's hands. Sometimes Dad's hands corrected me, disciplined me, shielded me, rescued me.
Dad's hands protected me. Dad's hand held mine when he walked me down the aisle. His hand gave me to my forever love, who, not surprisingly, is very much like Dad. Dad's hands were the instruments of his great big, rugged-tender heart. Dad's hands were strength.
Dad's hands were love. With his hands he praised God. And he prayed to the Father with those big hands. Dad's hands. They were like Jesus' hands to me. Thank you for the laughter, For the good times that we share, Thanks for always listening, For trying to be fair. Thank you for your comfort , When things are going bad, Thank you for the shoulder, To cry on when I'm sad. This poem's a reminder that All my life through, I'll be thanking heaven For a special dad like you. By Merrill C. To you, O son of mine, I cannot give A vast estate of wide and fertile lands; But I can keep for you, the whilst I live, Unstained hands.
I have no blazoned scutcheon that insures Your path to eminence and worldly fame; But longer than empty heraldry endures A blameless name. I have no treasure chest of gold refined, No hoarded wealth of clinking, glittering pelf; I give to you my hand, and heart, and mind— All of myself. I can exert no mighty influence To make a place for you in men's affairs; But lift to God in secret audience Unceasing prayers. I cannot, though I would, be always near To guard your steps with the parental rod; I trust your soul to Him who holds you dear, Your father's God.
By Jaime E. My hero is the quiet type, No marching bands, no media hype, But through my eyes, it's plain to see, A hero, God has sent to me. With gentle strength and quiet pride, All self-concern is set aside, To reach out to his fellow man, And be there with a helping hand. Heroes are a rarity, A blessing to humanity. With all they give and all they do, I'll bet the thing you never knew, My hero has always been you. Although the author is unknown, this is a highly regarded Christian poem for Father's Day.
By William McComb. Our fathers—where are they, the faithful and wise? Men strong in the Lord, Who were nurtured and fed with the milk of the Word; Who breathed in the freedom their Savior had given, And fearlessly waved their blue banner to heaven. Our fathers—how lived they? Self-portrait, c. Random House Webster's Unabridged Dictionary.
