“Just Like His Dad” Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s

“Just Like His Dad”

“And he walked in all the ways of Asa his father; he turned not aside from it, doing that which was right in the eyes of the LORD” —I Kings 22:43_

“Well, what are you going to be, my boy, When you have reached manhood’s years—A doctor, a lawyer, or actor great,

Moving throngs to laughter and tears?” But he shook his head, as he gave reply

In a serious way he had,

“I don’t think I’d care to be any of them; I want to be like my dad!”

 

He wants to be like his dad! You men,

Did you ever think, as you pause,

That the boy who watches your every move

Is building a set of laws?

He’s molding a life you’re the model for,

And whether it’s good or bad

Depends on the kind of example set

To the boy who’d be like his dad.

It’s a job that none but yourself can fill;

It’s a charge you must answer for;
It’s a duty to show him the road to tread

Ere he reaches his manhood’s door.

It’s a debt you owe for the greatest joy

On this old earth to be had

This pleasure of having a boy to raise

Who wants to be like his dad!
