The belongings you taught me i’m able to usually understand
how ought to i now not? the roots have sunk so deep
all lessons of the coronary heart that i will hold
no matter who i am or where i am going

Kids examine from what their parents are, and so
you are my e book of life, the thoughts i achieve
simplest in your hands i quiet sleep
under my words your voice sings soft and sluggish

From you i discovered the regulations of proper and wrong
in opposition to which i at instances needed to rise up,
although with remorse i carry with me nonetheless

How fortunate i’m to had been cherished so properly
even as i pushed towards your will
counting on a father truthful and sturdy
