Dad and son on beach

“Walk a little plainer, Daddy,”
said a little boy so frail.
“I’m following in your footsteps
And I don’t want to fail.

Sometimes your steps are very plain,
Sometimes they’re hard to see.
So walk a little plainer, Daddy,
For you are leading me.
I know that you once walked this way
Many years ago.
And what you did along the way
I’d really like to know.
For sometimes when I’m tempted
I don’t know what to do.
So, walk a little plainer, Daddy,
For I must follow you.

Someday when I am grown up,
You are like I want to be,
Then I will have a little boy,
Who will want to follow me.
And I would want to lead him right
And help him to be true.
So, walk a little plainer, Daddy,
For we must follow you.
