Father's Day is coming soon, and in this feature, we've compiled a special list of songs that sing of the Father's love – and of our love for Him! Dads at their very best, are examples of our Heavenly Father. They point the way for us in life with wisdom, love, discipline, understanding, direction, and compassion. They're transformative in our formative years. They're larger than life. Sometimes they're funny and make us laugh. Sometimes they're serious and bring correction. But they always try to lead and guide us in the right direction.
We're blessed to have them in our lives and we appreciate the foundation that they've laid for us. Join us as we honor and give glory to our Heavenly Father with these songs specifically chosen with fathers in mind!
Below, we've got an amazing selection of songs that sing of the Father's love and include contemporary and traditional worship arrangements, as well as kid's offerings by Dave Williamson, Russel Mauldin, Dennis Allen, Kyle Hill, Hal Wright, Bradley Knight, Jon Patrick, and more! These beloved anthems will bless all of the fathers in your congregation and will most importantly glorify our Heavenly Father!
