A Gift Well Used

As I open my eyes
stretch and yawn

and see through my window
another dawn

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...
