Be Like You Lyrics

Performed by: Finding Favour
Album: Reborn
Released: 2015

Have 9 months really gone this fast?
Holding my baby girl in my hands
Ten million thoughts running through my mind
But one thing’s for sure
God I want to get this right

(chorus)
I want to love her like You love me
Give her everything I can
I want to live a life that’s holy
And be a better man
You could have chosen anybody
But I’m the one You gave her to
If she’s gonna be like me
Then, God, I want to be like You

Finally turned 5 and he looks like me
Always playing baseball and climbing up some tree
God I know he won’t always be this young
Let him grow up proud to be his daddy’s son

(chorus)
I want to love him like You love me
Give him everything I can
I want to live a life that’s holy
And be a better man
You could have chosen anybody
But I’m the one You gave him to
If he’s gonna be like me

‘Cause their feet are gonna follow
Where their father leads them to
So Father won’t You lead me straight to You
And when my life is over
I pray they will look back
And say they saw a bit of Jesus in their dad

I want to love them like You love me
Give them everything I can
I want to live a life that’s holy
And be a better man
You could have chosen anybody
But I’m the one You gave them to
If they’re gonna be like me
If they’re gonna be like me
Then, God, I want to be like You

  1. I’m 32 weeks pregnant with my first child and just heard this song on the radio. Made me tear up.. Love this song so much! 🙂

  2. My dad cheated on my mom a couple of years ago. I was thirteen and I caught him. They divorced about two years ago, and I am now nineteen getting married in December. I am using this song as the Father and Daughter dance song hoping God will use this song to change his life around.

    Please Lord Jesus help my father come to be like you!

  3. I’m only 15 and yet this song still touches my heart, I don’t plan on being a father until I’m happily married and are prepared. Still sing this song all the time though

      • Me too! My dad, even though he’s a believer, just doesn’t show love and support at all, and I never felt them. He’s there but not really there, and he’s only there when it’s time to criticize us. Now I wish I had a dad like them…

  4. Heard this song for the first time Sunday night at Ike Hamilton Expo Center during Glory Fest. Listening to you talk about your daughter and the loss of your band member’s newborn son struck me deep inside. I lost my firstborn child a little over 8 years ago when she was 15 years old. Ever day is hard to get thru without her, but with God’s help, the love of my other 3 kids & an awesome support system made up of family, friends, coworkers, church family & even complete strangers, I am able to get past the pain and focus on the memories of the 15 years we had with her. Thank you so much for what you do.

  5. Not sure who would think to give this a thumb’s down. This is a beautiful video and amazing song. I pray everyone feels HIS love especially the little ones starting their journey through this life

  6. I had a chance at being a father right away. I was dating someone who had kids. Her oldest is a girl and then the second is a boy. She picked someone else, better than me. I wanted to be the dad the kids wanted, the husband she wanted. I guess this proves God does not want me to have the blessing of marriage and children.

  7. “Finally turned 5 and he looks like me
    Always playing baseball and climbing up some tree
    God I know he won’t always be this young
    Let him grow up proud to be his daddy’s son” itong line ng lyrics talagang sinsbi ng isang ama na Masaya syang nagkaroon ng anak na katulad o kamukha niya … woooh .. very touching i miss my popsie..

  8. papa ko hindi ganyan 🙁 imbis na iparamdam niya is love nya kami ayun hindi lagi nalang po ako pinapagalitan at sinasabihan na mamatay na ako 🙁

  9. Napakaganda ng video kasi nararamdaman ko yong presence ng Papa ko kahit sumakabilang buhay na sya , habang pinapanood ko ito ramdam ko na parang nandyan lang talaga sya sa tabi ko. Gusto at pangarap ko ding isang magaling na Ama sa aking magiging pamilya. To God be the glory and God bless us all.
