Worship Song Series (O) Where Are The Fathers? by Israel Houghton

🎵I finally got into the hotel room, it must have been mid day
Started flipping through the channels, just to kind of drift away🎵
Every other network, show the challenged and abused
And sea of people laughing as the children sat confused🎵
🎵And I saw a mother pleading, with her son to turn away
From the lifestyle he had chosen, full of violence and hate🎵
As the conversation heated, my mind began to race
Somebody’s missing, something’s badly out of place
🎵Where are the fathers, the responsible ones
Where are the fathers, have they helped to raise their sons
Look at the daughters, do you see the violation🎵
Do you need more demonstration
Are you really even bothered
Tell me where, where are the fathers🎵
Well then I went downstairs to visit with a friend of many years
And in just a few short seconds, he exploded into tears🎵
Slowly he unraveled, a lifetime packed with pain
I asked him for specifics, He attempted to explain
🎵He said his wife and children says he’s out of control
And it’s adding to the growing scars fully branded on his soul🎵
Suddenly I asked him, about the conflict with his dad
And he didn’t have to say a word, His troubled face just said
🎵Where are the fathers, the responsible ones
Where are the fathers, have they helped to raise their sons
Look at the daughters, do you see the violation🎵
Do you need more demonstration
Are you really even bothered
Tell me where, where are the fathers🎵
Somebody tell me, I want to know
Got to know…. Ooooo🎵
An now I standing in your presence, you compassion is so strong
And I’ve wondered how I’ve managed, without you for so long🎵
All I’ve ever needed, Is right here in your watch
Oh daddy I’m so grateful, here my heart inside this song🎶
🎵You are the father, the responsible one
You are the father, and I’m so glad to be your son
Now I have daughters, and everyday’s a celebration🎵
They are free of violation
All because you took the time to bother
All because you took the time to bother
All because you gave you life to bother🎵
I’m so glad, glad you are my father
