God Woke Me Up


When God woke me up this morning
I gave him all honor and praise
Thanking him for a good nights sleep
and for seeing a brand new day

God is truly wonderful and in many ways
he will fill your heart with joy
and your mind with kind words to say

Simple words like good morning and how are you today
may I help you, hows your family or
have a safe journey along the way

Many times we take things for granted because
we are of this world, but we should
keep our minds on Jesus, be humble like boys and girls

When someone says something nice to you, respond
in a Christ like way, remember to say thank you
and may God bless you today
