Another Day

 Another Day




 Lord thank You for another day,
Within this life of mine
Give me the strength to live it well,
Whatever I may find

 

Bestow from Your abundance,
Whatever I may lack
To use the hours wisely,
For I cannot have them back

 

Lord thank you for another day,
In which to make amends
For little slights or petty words,
Inflicted on my friends

For sometimes losing patience,
With problems that I find,
For seeing faults in other lives,
But not the ones in mine

 

Lord thank You for another chance,
In which to try to be
A little more deserving
Of the gifts You've given me

 

For yesterday is over,
And tomorrow's far away,
And I remain committed,
To the good I do today !
