Thanks to God for His Gifts

As gray light ushers in a brand new day,
I watch the darkness slowly slip away.
As the night filled with peaceful slumber ends,
I thank Him upon whom my life depends.
I realize it is He who provides for me
And protects me from dangers I don’t see.
It is He alone who knows what this day brings,
Whether great distress or many happy things.
Regardless of things that might come my way,
I thank Him for the gift of this new day.
I know He’ll be with me, no matter what,
So, I’ll fully trust Him–whate’er my lot.
