S: History of my Appa
BC: The End | 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 joy of a morning in spring, The faith of a mustard seed, The patience of eternity, The depth of a family need, | The generous soul of nature, The comforting arm of night, The wisdom of the ages, The power of the eagle's flight, | Then God combined these qualities, When there was nothing more to add, He knew His masterpiece was complete, And so, He called it ... Dad
