Lyrics
My Grandfather
My grandfather was tall and strong. His head 'most reached the skies.
And children looked way up and up 'fore they could see his eyes.
His eyes so kind and tender were of the brightest blue
And one could always plainly see the love that in them grew.

His life spanned near a century,
And he saw many changes
From horse drawn carts to jets and cars;
From wood stoves to gas ranges,
But more than ninety years of life
With hardships and spoilt plans
Could not fill him with bitterness
But made a bigger man!

My grandpa's love was paramount and known throughout the land.
When anyone was hurt or ill, he'd go and lend a hand.
He loved the little creatures and to them was so kind
(Except the mighty bumblebee attacking from behind!)

His life spanned near a century,
And he saw many changes
From horse drawn carts to jets and cars;
From wood stoves to gas ranges,
But more than ninety years of life
With hardships and spoilt plans
Could not fill him with bitterness
But made a bigger man!

The children loved my grandpa most, and he loved every one. 
He'd swing them high with big, strong arms. They'd giggle with such fun.
My grandpa was so selfless and honest, good, and true.
He followed well the Savior's plan and with His spirit grew.

His life spanned near a century,
And he saw many changes
From horse drawn carts to jets and cars;
From wood stoves to gas ranges,
But more than ninety years of life
With hardships and spoilt plans
Could not fill him with bitterness
But made a bigger man!
