Every morning I wake with Joy Abounding
To see all the works of God astounding
The bluest sky, the reddest Rose
The Mockingbird, the squirrel's nose!
The flowers asleep in my flower beds
Waiting for Spring to show their heads.
The Bluebird's call, the Robin's wing
The tree buds are fat, it is almost Spring
The Mallards swimming in the lake
They've come again, as for life they mate.
All the wonders of this earth
Were made by God, our life, our worth
And I thank Him now as well I should
For creating this day with all its good!
