When I awoke this morning,
it was so dreary and grey,
Cold and damp, shivery weather,
why does it have to be this way?
Why can't it always be sunshine,
the breeze soft upon my face,
and the glow of the sun warm around me,
a shining, lovely place.
But if it were always like that,
it would not be special to see,
for having everything be the same,
would make life very dull to see.
It is the variety that piques the interest,
looking forward to what may come,
and not knowing how things will look today,
it's the anticipation that makes it fun.
I can remember when all my days
were grey and dull and grim,
and I merely hoped to make it thru the day,
and know tomorrow I'd have to do it all again.
Then came Jesus, who lifted me up,
and made me see things all new,
who washed away the greys in my life,
and filled me with the glow of all that's true.
He showed me that He was the way,
His path was lit with love,
and if I let Him, He'd show me how to live,
and pour out His gifts on me from above.
I am so glad that I did say 'yes'
and now He rules my heart,
and though life didn't change, how I saw it did,
and now each morning is a brand new start.
The Son shines always in my heart,
He's made all my dreams come true,
and the soft breeze of love is mine every day,
for it comes from loving you.
I bask in the warmth of love I've been given,
I dance in fields of grace,
and know that I am living the miracle of love,
to just be with you in this place.
So I sing with joy, I run and dance,
I have all my dreams come true,
and Jesus gave it all to me,
when He brought and gave me you!
The weather outside doesn't matter at all,
for inside summer is all I see,
and the love we share is a treasure full of wonder,
so I know happier I could never be!
