Renewal Song (Father I Thank You)

This is a hymn of thanks by Australian Roman Catholic priest Fr Frank Andersen 

It was originally published in the Eagles Wings collection and was later included in the Scripture in Song - The Music of Frank Andersen MSC  which is still available.   The music booklets for both of these collections include sheet music for the song.

The un-named tune was written by Fr Andersen:  it is in a major key (D in the original printing), with a 4/4 time signature.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright, and cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website.

The song starts with a chorus, and has three verses, each with four lines. A rough outline is
Chorus:
Father I thank you for your goodness.
You show yourself to children.
And in my life I see you leading me
Into my childhood once again.

1 Under the shadow of your guiding hand
... And I am young again.


2 I feel the waters of your life in me;
... And I am born again.

3 Beside your waters I am growing still!
... And I am strong again.

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY Father I thank you for your goodness.
You show yourself to children.
And in my life I see you leading me
Into my childhood once again.

1 Under the shadow of your guiding hand
I walk the journey of my life.
Across the years I see you leading me;
And I am young again.

2 I feel the waters of your life in me;
They come from deep within my heart.
Into your peacefulness you’re calling me.
And I am born again.

3 Beside your waters I am growing still.
Your spirit rises in my heart.
Renewing every fibre of my life;
And I am strong again.
