Ode to Jesus my Savior on this bright new day,
A new morning of hope beneath a glorious sun.
While earth is gently touched by its’ gleaming rays
As a sign that God desires to kindly bless everyone.
For beneath the rising sun’s fair brilliance and warmth,
We can reach out to grasp and hold onto everlasting hope.
As when we’re kept warm in a frigid winter near a fireside hearth,
We live in peace and safety under the eyes of God’s watchful scope.
Because within the Lord’s provision, his loving plan,
He devised the only way to perfectly save
The sinful and often hurting man
Through his own Son Jesus whose life on the cross he gave.
Now with the unquenchable hope of a never ending tomorrow,
We can live today free of pain, oppressing fear, and lasting sorrow.
