Country music artist Craig Morgan has released his first new music in over three years, sharing “The Father, My Son, And The Holy Ghost” written in memory of his 19-year-old son Jerry. Written, produced, and released solely by the singer-songwriter, the intimate and emotional song relates the grief, faith and hope he and his family have shared in the time since Jerry’s tragic passing.

“As difficult as this song was to write and as difficult as it is to sing, it gives me strength in my faith in God,” shared Craig in a statement. “My hope is it does the same for others.”

“The Father, My Son, And The Holy Ghost” Lyrics

Lights are shining bright, it’s always downtown on the road
I have friends that come from outta town asking me to go
They say, “There’s so much going on,
Why don’t you come along and show us around?”

I tell them Karen’s not feeling well so I probably shouldn’t go out
Besides I’ve gotta fix a list of things I need to do around the house
Then I hang up the phone, turn the radio back on, and sit back down
I know my boy ain’t here but he ain’t gone

In the morning I wake up, give her a kiss, head to the kitchen
Pour a cup of wake-me-up and try to rouse up some ambition
Go outside, sit by myself but I ain’t alone
I’ve got the Father, my son, and the Holy Ghost

I’ve been beat up, I been pushed and shoved but never really knocked down
Between mom and dad, Uncle Sam and friends I somehow always pulled out
But the pain of this was more
Than I’d ever felt before, yeah I was broke

I cried and cried and cried until I passed out on the floor
Then I prayed and prayed and prayed till I thought I couldn’t pray anymore
And minute by minute, day by day, my God, He gave me hope
I know my boy ain’t here but he ain’t gone

In the mornings I wake up, give her a kiss, head to the kitchen
Pour a cup of wake-me-up and try to rouse up some ambition
Go outside, sit by myself but I ain’t alone
See, I’ve got the Father, my son, and the Holy Ghost

I hope, I love, I pray, I cry
I heal a little more each day inside
I won’t completely heal till I go home

In the morning I wake up, give her a kiss, head to the kitchen
Pour a cup of wake-me-up and try to rouse up some ambition
Go outside, sit by myself but I ain’t alone
I’ve got the Father, my son, and the Holy Ghost
One day I’ll wake up and I’ll be home
With the Father, my son, and the Holy Ghost
