Sample of script:
This song is for all the men and boys out there
For the ones who aren’t sure of their roles today
With todays mixed signals, what is right?
Listen to my instructions, to my instructions
What a dad must be.
[Verse 1: There’s a child
A boy lost and frightened
He has a home
But no guidance
And he can’t find his way
Hear his cries of frustration
A girl, confused
No direction, her life in shambles
Hoping someone will show her the way
And in this world which ignores her
Please bring her hope for today
Be a dad
Don’t be just a father
Be the one, the one
The one who will guide her, will pilot him
Source of loving strength, tender counsel
Help us Father, we will lean on you.
Oh be a Dad
For any male can be a father
But a dad is here as God’s agent
Tender firmness ever displayed
Be a dad, a dad
Mirror of God’s love
Reflecting from above
His great plan
Be a Dad, a Dad
It’s God’s plan
