At The Dawning of Day

by Paul Mayes Jamar

I sing praise and hallelujah
to my risen Lord and King
for He gave salvation to you,
And eternal life our faith does bring.

Help me to embrace the truth, divine
of the gospel of Jesus, sound and sweet,
and share it with others who I find,
along life’s highway traveled by many feet.

Spread the good news that Jesus saves
across the earth to all who breath,
and free many souls who are sin's slaves
give them hope, and a future to be forever free.

The birds cry out at the dawning of a new day
as my soul thirsts for intimacy with God now,
the first fruits of my mind and being I come to lay
at Jesus, and God’s feet as in morning prayer I bow.

Praise the Lord of Heaven for this new beginning
of a new day to worship, and serve God’s only Son
for granting me another chance before the ending
of time, to witness, and observe another rising sun.
