When the sunlight in the morning
Parts the shadows of the night,
And the world once more awakens
To a day so fresh and bright…
With the dew-kissed flowers so fragrant,
As the birds begin to sing
Long before the sound of traffic,
To this day its noise will bring…
This is when we need to seek Him
As we store this peace away,
And we ask our lord to guide us
Through this journey of today.
For the clouds may hide the sunshine
Long before this day is through;
But when storms of life are raging,
He can give us peace anew;
And each day with all its problems,
With its joy and sometimes strife,
Can be like a gift so precious
On this journey known as life.
All this beauty He has given
And this peace we store away
Are the gifts the Father gives us,
As we journey through today.
