Lyrics: Father: My Heav'nly Father wants me to be the very best I can, <br/>He shows me the way and guides me each day, I want to follow His plan. <br/>He's strong yet gentle, firm yet kind, Forgives me when I stray. <br/>He asks me to become like Him, Like father, like son. <br/> <br/>Son: My father holds the priesthood, through it I see him serving others, <br/>He's always there to do his share whenever work is done. <br/>I see him read the scriptures, listen as he prays, watch his example for living. <br/>He leads our fam'ly, loves his sweetheart, takes the time to spend with children, <br/>He's always honest, always loves me, even when I stray. <br/>I'll learn to understand as I become a man <br/>Like father, like son. <br/> <br/>Chorus Together: I'll follow in his footsteps, I'm learning day by day. <br/>And everything he teaches me I'll willingly obey. <br/>My life has found a pattern, my father is the one <br/>I want to be like him you see, like father, like son. <br/> <br/>(Then combine two parts, followed by chorus)
