A New Day
A New Day
Each day is a new beginning, LORD
not just on the first of the year
Time is gone before we know it
and is so very dear.
Minutes turn into hours and before
we know it, the day has passed
And LORD, only what we do for You
is all that will ever last.
How wondrous to contemplate Your Love
anew each passing day
We can go forth and know that You
are helping us in every way.
How blessed we are to have You
as our companion each new day
Instructing us and guiding us
as by Your side, we stay.
Yes, it does take a lot of focus
to keep our thoughts on Thee
LORD, we just ask that You grant us
eyes that we may forever see...
Your handiwork all around us
Your working all things out
For the highest good of all
there is never any doubt.
So Thank You, Heavenly Father
I am so happy to acknowledge Thee
Keep me forever in Your Presence
where I desire to be.
(c)2013 Karen Langford Brown
"Cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning;
for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way
wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee."
