Hillsong UNITED'S Benjamin Hastings has released a brand new solo single "A Father's Blessing." Written by Joel Houston, Dylan Thomas, and Hastings, the song is a beautiful prayer that Hastings has written for his own children.
"I have a new song for you guys that is especially special to me," Hastings announces. "It's called "A Father's Blessing." I would never release something I didn't love or believe in but I promise you'll never hear me start a sentence like that unless I truly mean it. It's an articulation of everything I want for my kids while reflecting on the ways my parents raised me, but all through the lens of an Irish blessing. I really hope you like it. You can listen to it now wherever."
May the Lord be kind to keep you
May the devil fear your reach
May your pockets fill with gold and yet your heart be void of greed
May the darkness bow before you
May you find the light you seek
May all those roads you roam wind home to me
