Benjamin Hastings - A Father's Blessing (CCM)

Benjamin Hastings - A Father's Blessing
Benjamin Hastings has released a Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) track called A Father's Blessing.

Benjamin shares: "I have a new song for you guys that is especially special to me. It’s called “A Father’s Blessing.” I would never release something I didn’t love or believe in but I promise you’ll never hear me start a sentence like that unless I truly mean it. It’s an articulation of everything I want for my kids while reflecting on the ways my parents raised me, but all through the lens of an Irish blessing. I really hope you like it."

LYRICS:

Look at ya kid 
Your growing up quick 
And I can’t seem to tell you to slow 

But there’ll soon come a day 
And it scares me to death 
When you tell me you’re ready to go 

You’re as quick as a whip 
With your hands on your hips 
Only eyes that could rival your mums 

And so proudly I’ll watch 
You make the world better off 
So my prayer is wherever you go 

May the road rise up to meet you 
May the wind blow where you lead
May the sun shine on your face while the rain falls on your fields 
May the world lie down before you 
May you be all you can be 
But may all those roads you roam wind home to me

And I’ll be at your games 
Cause my folks did the same 
And I’ll pour your first glass of Bordeaux 
Watch me ruin your palate for anything else
So in your youth you can’t afford to get drunk 

And oh, there’s lips to be kissed 
And there’s ones to missed 
And you won’t keep my 2 cents for long

So you’ll make your mistakes
Like your ma an da did 
Until one day you stumble on love 

May the Lord be kind to keep you 
May the devil fear your reach 
May your pockets fill with gold and yet your heart be void of greed 
May the darkness bow before you 
May you find the light you seek 
May all those roads you roam wind home to me

Listen up kid 
I love you to bits 
And I wish life would learn to be slow 

But there’ll soon come a day 
And God I hope I’m well aged 
When I tell you it’s my turn to go 

And death’s cruel I’ll admit
But mourn for me quick 
And look after those kids of your own 

And just make different mistakes 
Than your ma and da made 
And make our ceiling look like your floor

So may the road rise up to meet you 
May your laughter fill the streets 
May you children be as kind to you 
As you have been to me 
When your life’s been lived for all it’s worth    
And your grandkids let you leave 
May all those roads you roam wind home to me 
Oh may all those roads you roam wind home to me
