"Love Without End, Amen"

Listening to this song and some other related country hits like "Daddy's Little Girl" (Alabama) was my daily habit when I was a short-term OFW a few years back. Even now, "Love Without End, Amen" continues to touch my sensibility as a father. It doesn't fail to make me wonder how many times I had brought my dad to tears with my childish antics and my misguided teenager's zeal, just as it also continues to remind me that in dealing with my own kids I should not forget how it was to be a child.








"Love Without End, Amen"


(sung by George Strait)



I got sent home from school one day with a shiner on my eye.
Fightin' was against the rules and it didn't matter why.
When dad got home I told that story just like I'd rehearsed.
And then stood there on those tremblin' knees and waited for the worst.

And he said, "Let me tell you a secret about a father's love,
A secret that my daddy said was just between us."
He said, "Daddies don't just love their children every now and then.
It's a love without end, amen, it's a love without end, amen."

When I became a father in the spring of '81
There was no doubt that stubborn boy was just like my father's son.
And when I thought my patience had been tested to the end,
I took my daddy's secret and I passed it on to him.

And he said, "Let me tell you a secret about a father's love,
A secret that my daddy said was just between us."
He said, "Daddies don't just love their children every now and then.
It's a love without end, amen, it's a love without end, amen."

Last night I dreamed I died and stood outside those pearly gates.
When suddenly I realized there must be some mistake.
If they know half the things I've done, they'll never let me in.
And then somewhere from the other side I heard these words again.

And he said, "Let me tell you a secret about a father's love,
A secret that my daddy said was just between us."
He said, "Daddies don't just love their children every now and then.
It's a love without end, amen, it's a love without end, amen."


HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!
