My eyes open and behold the new day,
my thoughts are arising without dismay.
For I hold God's Word within my mind,
and no greater comfort could I find.
I read God's Word and pray aloud,
of the Christ in me, I am very proud.
My course is set with plan upon plan,
of serving God's Word to my fellow man.
I remember the blessings of the day before,
and leaving my home I expect many more.
Yet, there's a hope that rests in my heart,
that God will signal the time to depart.
To leave this land I daily roam,
for God, my Father, to welcome me home.
That is the hope that lives within me,
and conditions my heart to be pressure free.
