Basic Instructions


I wake up in the mornings
Feeling good as can be.
Then I get down on my knees
Asking God to lead me.
I need Basic Instructions
Before leaving earth.

I go through the day
With a prayer in my heart.
To keep this feeling
Nothing will make me depart.
I need Basic Instructions
Before leaving earth.

Many do forget
The joy that it brings.
How it prevents your worrying
About so many things.
I need Basic Instructions
Before leaving earth.

Life can get long
Soft pillows can get hard.
Burdens can get heavy
But trials can be barred.
I need Basic Instructions
Before leaving earth.

Before I retire
To get a good nights rest.
I thank God for protection
For Him I'll do my best.
I need Basic Instructions
Before leaving earth.

Knowing that this world
Is not my real place of birth.
I keep my BIBLE close
For my body goes to dirt.
I need Basic Instructions
Before leaving earth.
