Narrator: Jonah Bright, 1963
All I ever wanted was to grow to be
The image of you, Father, the sum of your beliefs.
But how can I believe there’s good in where you’ve gone?
How can I find comfort in family and home?
I have learned so many things you never knew,
That this stone feels eternal between me and you.
You taught me that the Spirit reveals the Truth Divine.
How could it be that your truth was so different from mine?
When I have my own boy I will make him strong.
He will feel my hand guide him away from wrong.
When I find a woman, I will make her see,
The warmth that’s in my heart, the goodness that’s in me.
‘Cause I’m gonna sweet talk her, ‘til she’s sweet on me.
I’m gonna sweet talk her, ‘til she’s sweet on me.
