Rejoice as the day breaks, rejoice!
Let the neighbors hear your cheerful voice.
Allow your face to show forth your merry heart.
Praising the Lord is more than a learned art.
Give thanks as you rise early at dawn.
Even when heaviness echoes in your sonorous yawn,
Look faithfully positive ahead to the bright new day.
Commit to your work as you fervently pray.
Laugh out loud at your daunting challenge.
The set-back of yore you must prayerfully avenge,
Your mindset should be to win with the risen Christ,
Victory is sure and certain since, after Him, you thirst.
By faith, command the day to be in your favor;
You are well positioned to eat the fruit of your labor.
As you seek first the right and real thing,
Other things are yours from the mighty king.
