Here comes a song which celebrates the role and function of fathers. From my perspective, similarly as with men in general, the role of fathers seems to be hard to sum up and yet the absence of fathers seems to be so detrimental upon our society.
I have had 3 father figures in my life and each of them have left positive and indelible contributions. In this song I briefly share about these three significant figures in my life; my (natural/birth) father, my spiritual father and my heavenly Father. In conclusion, you will notice that the title of this song is called 'Fatherless'. This is not because I am without a father, but because
1) I realise how unfortunate I would be if I had not had their examples to follow.
2) I hope that those who hear this song and relate to it would either find encouragement in what they too experienced or find hope in the promise that God will be a Father to them.
This song is a celebration and a lamentation, for the joy of the fathers that are present and the sadness for those who are absent.
