Each day may bring about something new That makes me question if I’ll get through In the darkest night I look to You, Then worry fades away. Each part of my body may soon break There’s only so much pain I can take Happy isn’t something I can fake, Yet with You, I’m okay. It’s not a question of if, but when Whether I will make it to the end For with Your love, I’ll be strong again I know I’ll find my way. Even if I were to face new stress, I will continue to do my best Then I will ask You to take the rest I trust what You will say. I will not give up at any price Pain won’t ever cause me to think twice Of whether I truly want this life Sunrise is a new day. There is beauty in so many things If I stop, pause and really listen, I can feel warm peace and joy seep in When I begin to pray.
