A Father’s Heart

Lyrics and Music by Michael King

© 1996

Verse 1

G          C               D                       G

Ninety nine of the sheep are in the fold

Em             C                D                        G

Yet he puts on his coat and he braves the bitter cold

Em                 C                     D               G

And he steps into the night he could do nothing else

C      D         G

For he has a fathers heart

Verse 2

G                               C            D                          G

Onward through the night the shepherd calls the name

Em   C      D                 G

Of a little lamb who is lost again

Em                 C                     D               G

And he hopes against hope he could do nothing else

C      D         G

For he has a fathers heart

Bridge

Em                                    C         G                         D

Sometimes you think that no one cares about your pain

Em                   C              G                         D

And you feel so lost and lonesome standing in life’s rain

Em                      C                 D                      G

But He searches for you daily and he never will give up

C      D         G

For he has a fathers heart

Verse 3

G                                   C          D                   G

The shepherd finds the lamb so cold and all alone

Em     C                    D                          G

And he gently whispers I’ve come to take you home

Em               C                              D                         G

I’d never leave you or forsake you for you mean so much to me

C        D          G

And I have a father’s heart

Verse 4

G            Em              C           D                      G

Yes God looks to the horizon each and every day

Em                      C              D                        G

Searching for His sons and daughters who have gone astray

Em                  C           D                         G

And He hopes against hope He could do nothing else

C      D         G

For he has a fathers heart
