As I open my eyes
stretch and yawn
and see through my window
I will surrender this day to You Lord
for it is a gift for me
to enjoy but to use
so others may come to see
the Creator of life itself
A Savior, Healer, Friend
who stretches His hand out lovingly
the broken heart He mends
let not this day be wasted
on idle thoughts or deeds
but as the sower plants in season
let me too plant seeds
everywhere my feet may travel
let me shine your love
oh keep my eyes fixed on You
and what will last when we're above
for life on this earth is fleeting
and there is but one thing I can take
to heaven with me one day
and that is soul's for Jesus Sake
family, friends and strangers
I may pray for or may meet
will mean more than fame or fortune
eternal treasures oh so sweet
so take this day Oh Lord
a gift I will invest
for I want to hear Well Done
when at Your gates I rest...
