A Fresh New Dawn


my faith in you is vast and immense,
both through happy times and tense,
not knowing what will happen,
but in the chaos, there is a certain sense,

a knowing and quiet confidence in you,
I just know you will see us through,
we live each day, secure and calm,
soothened by your love, a balm,

I pray for a miracle, by your hands,
I pray for sight, through blinding sands,
and yes it happens, yet again,
your love and justice, supreme it reigns

we who are human, so quickly despair,
only in need, resort to prayer,
but I converse with you, each day,
The only way I know to pray,

you are my friend, you are my guide,
all doubts and sorrows are swept aside,
when with my lips, I chant your name,
your love for all, is just the same.

another day, you have held my hand
another day, so well you planned,
another day, I marvelled some more,
my love for you fills every pore.

guide me oh lord, when my steps go wrong
walk by me as I step along,
fill my heart, with a loving song
be there for me, whenever I long.

the path is long and I may tire,
help me evolve, help me to flower,
let me fulfill the purpose for which I was born,
renew myself like a fresh new dawn.
