Today is the Day the Lord hath made.
But that day was the day I got my first zit
And the next year was the year when the love bug bit.
Such trials, such heart break, when time would pass so slow
If only my future for me I could know.
The books, the school, my first burger flip job
Many a night my pitiful life would just lead me to sob.
When in my career I would succeed is when I would be happy indeed.
But what I did find was to put in the time made no better for a life sublime.
Then I saw him, and he saw me
He made me laugh, what I felt was pure glee.
We shared our vows, we kissed with lips, from that day on no more lost loves I'd miss.
My needs were gone, my heart was kept. Life was love and in our love was life.
Till a woman did enter his life and our bed. And for years I believed the lies that were said.
How could this be? What's was wrong with me? I had no more life. I wish I were dead.
I had loved so strong and I had loved so long. And yet this life's love had somehow gone wrong.
This is the day the Lord hath made? How could I be glad or rejoice when so sad?
Lord, oh Lord, who am I to be? I thought till now it was wife I would be.
Oh daughter, oh daughter, my treasure in you you don't see. You've borrowed your worth without asking me. To understand this we must walk hand in hand, and trust me your life in my care for your plan.
For when you look back it is with relief you must see, because if what was then was not then, what we have today we would not be.
