so welcome to your new day

so welcome to your new day
time to tell your story
time to give yourself away
let go of the worry
and why so much hurry
time to slow down
what story will you tell
this day

so welcome to your new day
don’t compare and don’t stare
at all the insta-images
that sometimes just won’t dare
to be real and to say

i’m who i am
occasionally stumbling
always broken
anxiety has stolen some joy
but i’m who i am
loved by God
an image bearer
of my Creator
i am here
on this new day

so see the Light
who makes wrongs right
and mends our hurting souls
He lifts our heads
shows us the way
each time we go astray
He forgives
welcome to your new day
let go of that worry
don’t hurry
past the Light
on this new day

another day

another day to cry
so many whys
we can weep
together

another day to dance
its okay
take a chance
we can hold each other

another day to dream
close your eyes
and see the light
come to chase away
all the darkness
in our hearts
can we just start
again

on this new day
its okay
don’t say a word
we can
just be

another day
to take a breath
and rest
we can see
each other
we can hear
each other
and be
together
another
day

all we see

it’s not going to be okay
at least not in the way
we want it to be
okay won’t do today
longing for so much more

it’s not going to be okay
at least not in the way
we want it to be
the sorrow stays
my heart is sure
there is a place
where tears will end
okay then when
will that day be

it’s not going to be okay
at least not in the way
we want it to be
there’s a promise
for you and for me
surrender will be
all on our knees
finally
light will be
all we see

light will be
all we see

so today

dear God
really glad you're here
i'll receive all you have for me
with gratitude
for i know this new day
is a gift from You

so today
if i see a hurting soul
let me be a comfort

so today
if someone hurts me
let me be grace and forgiveness

so today
if i stumble in word or deed
please help me
change me

on this new day
make me new
on this new day

please change me

so here we are again
another day has dawned
lets get it right today
and see what we’ve become

so here we are again
another chance to love
to give and not to take
to set our hearts on things above

dear God we need to hear your voice
let all the change i want to see
let all the change begin in me
dear God
please
change
me
