In a letter he wrote to me his feelings,
he wrote of times when I was lost beneath my age,
he wrote of love beyond belief,
as he dove to rescue me,
from the water that was holding down my name

he shared the stories that were written in his memory
when I was tired, how he picked me up to hold,
and he carried me to see,
the mountain top he brings,
and then he turns around to see that I've turned old

so in a song I will sing to him my feelings,
and I will tell him that my love only grows,
and I will tell him that I care,
my love for him I share,
well hey dad, it is more than you could know

you've showed me where to take my faith and to walk to,
and you've layed down your life so I could breath,
and so I pray that God will bless,
your life with happiness,
I know mine has been blessed beyond belief

CHORUS
cause my father leads me through the water,
and his breath of air blows slightly on my face,
and I hope that he can see the joy with which he brings,
well hey dad, please fill me with your grace

I can see that Christ is living in you,
I can tell by the way you move your feet,
and I know there's so much more,
that God will have in store,
when you stand before the throne that holds the King

so one more time I will tell you that I love you,
oh and how my love grows deeper everyday,
and I will sit and reminisce,
with the memories I've missed,
and thank God that my dad could show the way

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Father take me by the hand and lead,
show me how you breath,
show me how to live my life like you (3x)

CHORUS

and I will sit and reminisce with the memories I've missed,
and thank God that my dad could show the way (2x)
