Abba Father Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves

Abba Father
My defender
You are holy
I surrender
For in my weakness
You protect me
When my heart strays
You correct me

I cry Abba Father
I love You, Daddy
Abba Father
I love You, I love You
Abba Father
I love You, Daddy
Abba Father

I love You, I love You, Daddy

Story Behind The Song:
I was leading worship for a conference on relating to God as Father when I wrote this song as the theme. Many of us have less than ideal fathers here on earth. Some are abusive, critical and even absent making it uncomfortable for them to call God "Father". But God is the perfect Father and we are called his children. On December 11, 2000 God gave me a daughter, Gabriella. I now understand more completely what God's being Abba (Daddy) really means. It's the closest relationship I've ever known, the greatest love I've ever experienced. It's that kind of bond that causes God to protect and correct us. And just like mine will, His heart melts when we simply say, "I love You, Daddy." (Romans 8:15; Galations 4:6.)
