Father's Day Songs
Where Are They?
Our list of Gospel songs focused on mothers has been popular. Dozens of artists have written material devoted to our mothers. With Fatherís Day fast approaching, the obvious question is, 'where is the list of songs devoted to fathers'?
Itís a valid question. Weíve done a bit of looking, and it seems that there just arenít that many out there! Songs relating to God as Father abound, of course. But itís our earthly dads that seem to be missing the positive tributes.
Is it because fathers simply arenít as endearing as mothers? Maybe their characteristics arenít as easily translated into musical verse? Maybe itís all that and more.
Immediately below is the admittedly tiny (but growing) list of what weíve come up with so far. We hope it grows as we take your suggestions and advice.
