Christian Poems for Father's Day

Updated on July 7, 2017


If you and your father attend separate churches, this is a wonderful time of the year to attend church with him or invite him to your place of worship.

Many gifts will be given on this day. Some items will be too big or too small. Some will be used, and some will be taken back to the stores for an exchange or refund.

But when you give the gift of poetry, it is a gift that will be heard or read, and you don't have to worry whether the size fits or not.

I would like to share with you some of my favorite Christian poems for Father's Day.


He leads our household well;

With instruction from the Bible,

Right behavior he'll compel.

Yet he steers us with compassion;

His gentle love is true:

He conforms to our Lord Jesus

He knows just what to do.

He teaches us with purpose,

Guides us in all Godly ways,

So we will take the right path,

And serve our lord with praise.

I'm glad you're a Christian, Dad

You help me see things clearly.

I'll look up to you,

And love you very dearly.

-Joanna Fuchs


God took the strength of a mountain,

The majesty of a tree,

The warmth of a summer sun,

The calm of a quiet sea,

The generous soul of nature,

The comforting arm of night,

The wisdom of the ages,

The power of the eagles flight,

The joy of a morning in spring,

The faith of a mustard seed,

The patience of eternity,

The depth of a family need,

Then God combined these qualities,

When there was nothing more to add,

He knew his masterpiece was complete,

And so, He called it ... Dad

Dad, if all the fathers

Had lined up one by one,

And God told me to pick,

I'd still choose to be your son.

I'm proud to have a father

Who listens and understands,

Who teaches me and sets fair rules

Without unfair demands

Dad you are my hero,

My role model in all I do.

So dad, if I could pick again,

You know I'd still pick you!

Joanna Fuchs


If I went shopping for a dad,

Here is what I'd buy:

One who would always stop

To answer a little boy's "why?"

One who would always speak kindly

To a little girl or boy,

One who would give to others

A bit of sunshine and joy.

I'd pick a dad that followed

The Bible's Golden Rule,

And one who went regularly

To church and Sunday School.

I'd buy the very finest dad

To place on our family tree,

And then I'd try to live like him

So he would be proud of me.

Helen Kitchell Evans



We thank you for our fathers,

Who have gathered here today,

To praise your holy name,

For giving them strengh and courage

To make it along life's way.

We thank you for our fathers,

Who have loved us so well,

Clothed us, fed us, educated us,

Now we get a chance to tell,

To tell them how we love them,

To tell them how much we care,

To tell them we are ever so grateful,

Because they were always there.

        Well on all the sites I have visited so far, they mostly have the same poem. I'm not quite sure who was the makers of these poems. But they made some great poems. They are simply beautiful and touching. God Bless you all.
