Lord, help me to use each day You give

Wisely, in ways You would have me to live…

Forgetting self but remember more

Those who are lonely, the suffering, the poor.

Let me lift them up in fervent prayer,

Reassuring them of Your love and care.

Let me thank You for the beauty You bring

In Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Spring;

Each one with special beauty You wrought

And on angels’ wings to earth were brought.

No earthly artist could e’er compare

To all Your gifts, so rich and rare.

Oh, may I not take for granted all these gifts

That bless my heart and my spirit lifts…

A love that nourishes my body and soul,

Just knowing You’re near and in control

Brings me joy, peace and tranquility,

And grace to always trust in Thee.
