A good good father

Tommorrow is Father’s Day and if you’re like me, this particular holiday has never really ranked up there as one of my favorites.

Doxology by Anthem Lights (featuring Selah)

I’m a big fan of Anthem Lights. They are a very talented vocal group and they do a lot of great hymnal and worship work. The very first song I heard from them was “All is well” and they have been on my radar ever since. This video clip also features a very popular vocal group Selah. It’s super well done and I highly recommend you add it your spiritual play list for sure. Enjoy!

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Bishop Thomas Ken, 1674
