MAN OF GOD




As part of a series of men's prayer meetings in Western Ontario, I wrote this simple song to remind myself to be a godly man. What does it mean to honour my original vows?

Since it was intended to be a song for men, I took inspiration from the hymn 'Rise Up, O Men Of God'. (And maybe a little Ron Sexsmith & Tom Petty)

Having my daughter Karli sing with me is significant. Faith of our fathers living still...

I was tempted to write 'Child Of God' but perhaps the non-men can also sing the verses to God and the chorus to us guys.
