Daddy's Bible -The Inspirations

Daddy called me to his bed
he said I don't have long
and I don't have many earthly things
that I can pass along

He held a tattered bible
He placed it in my hand
He said I hope to see you
In the blessed promised land
It was just a tattered bible
Daddy gave to me
But it was all I needed
To bring me to my knees
And somewhere up in Heaven
I know my daddy smiled
As an angel sweetly told him
How the lord had saved his child

Tears filled my eyes when Daddy died
I turned and walked away
I opened up his Bible
And on a special page
I found my Daddy's prayer list
My own name I could see
Though it was ripped and faded
By the tears he shed for me
It was just a tattered bible
Daddy gave to me
But it was all I needed
To bring me to my knees
And somewhere up in heaven
I know my Daddy smiled
As an angel sweetly told him
How the Lord had saved his child

And somewhere up in Heaven
I know my Daddy smiles
For he has the joy of knowing
That the Lord has saved his child
