A Joyful Song Rises

This day, this joyful day,
a song rises within me,
and I give You thanks for birth.

For a mind to know you.
For ears to hear birds singing
and whispers of love from others.
For eyes to see the magnificent splendor
created by your spoken word.

For the still small voice within to hear your voice.
For a mouth to proclaim your word.

For hands to bless and touch.
For feet to spread the Gospel of peace.

For a heart to love You & others.
For a soul to belong only to you.

For healing of brokenness,
and redemption of sin.
For reconciliation with others,
and grace to begin again.

This day, this joyful day,
I leap in my spirit
to touch you in heaven and say thank you,
O thank you for this life, this abundant life
that you have given to me.
