Our Father in Heaven


Our father in heaven they say
The father of mercy
But as an almighty being
He hath chosen to live quite far away

Maybe he has better things to deal with
Bigger celestial fish to fry
He is nonetheless absent
Far enough to not hear us cry

He admonishes us in his mercy
Sending messages our way
It’s the positive reinforcement
That’s more lacking day to day

When our real life fathers go to heaven
We mourn their absence and their loss
He’s our father in heaven
But heaven is no place for a father
