I Want To Be That Man
by Brian Free



He was awake before the sun with his Bible opened up
Seeking truth with every single page he turned
Anyone could see my daddy lived what he believed
With a gentle heart and passion for Jesus’ blood
I know we had our times we disagreed
But the longer I live it’s clear to me

I want to be that man
Who loves the Lord with all his heart just like the Word commands
Who takes a stand and leads his family as he holds the Father’s hand
I want to be that man

Society would say there’s a new ideal today
Not what you give, it’s more about what you can get
But I want to live a life that’s marked by sacrifice
Like the Savior who died to show us all the way
So I’ll take up my cross and trace His steps
Surrendering is how I serve Him best

I want to be that man
Who loves the Lord with all his heart just like the Word commands
Who takes a stand and leads his family as he holds the Father’s hand
I want to be that man

Just like Peter, Paul, and all the saints of days gone by
Let me show that kind of faith to those who come behind

I want to be that man
Who loves the Lord with all his heart just like the Word commands
Who takes a stand and leads his family as he holds the Father’s hand
I want to be that man

I’ll lead my family as I hold the Father’s hand
I want to be that man
