about

This song was sung for a Father's Day tribute at Tabernacle Baptist Church in George Iowa. I first heard this song many years ago when the Dave Williamson family was singing in Iowa. This song was unforgettable to me because of the daughter singing about her dad. Thanks to Dave Williamson for this beautiful song about the memories created by Dads for their daughters (and sons) by being Godly men of character.

Happy Father's Day!

lyrics

Thank You For The Beautiful Pictures

When I look into the mirror
I don't see the little girl I saw before
The ribbons and the curls and the
Wide eyed little girl aren't there anymore

But if I look into my memory
I can find so many pictures that my smiles have stored
Of one happy little girl in her ribbons and her curls
With the Daddy she adores.

Thank you for the beautiful pictures.
They keep filling up the pages of my mind.
Thank you for the beautiful pictures
They just keep getting better all the time.

Every memory you've ever given me
You've always given from your heart
So thank you for the beautiful pictures
Dad, I'll cherish them like priceless works of art.

The keepsake box now holds my treasures
Tattered picture books of times we used to share
The brown eyed littled girl with her brother standing near
Can still be found in there.

But my heart holds greater treasures,
And there isn't one my memory could ever spare
Of a happy grown up girl in her wedding gown and pearls
With a Dad who really cares

Thank you for the beautiful pictures.
They keep filling up the pages of my mind.
Thank you for the beautiful pictures
They just keep getting better all the time.

I never fail to see God the Father's love for me.
I've always seen so much of Him in you.
So thank you for the beautiful pictures.
Every one shows Jesus shining through.

I still love it when you wrap your arms around me Dad.
I guess I never will outgrow that part.
You may see me all grown up on the outside.
But I'll always be your little girl at heart.
