It’s morning, Lord, and I’ve come to say,
How thankful I am for a brand new day.
You have given me eyes, this morning to see,
That on this new day, You’re working in me.
Please take me and use me, however You please,
Give me Your wisdom as I fall to my knees,
To seek all Your ways, my heart does desire,
Please bring down Your passion and bring down Your fire,
So that I might serve You with all of my might,
Help me stay in the battle, not run from the fight.
You need mighty warriors; these days are so dark,
You need Your dear children to come light the spark,
That gives those around us bright hope for tomorrow,
That gives them relief from their days filled with sorrow.
And then when You’ve filled us with joy, strength, and love,
We’ll humbly give praises to Heaven above.
