I Smile

I roll out of bed and stare at the new day breaking,
I don't know what it's got - good or bad coming;
But then I smile.

Gloomy faces I see of everyone on the streets,
Depression has taken over'em, they've given in to defeat;
But still I smile.

I hit my feet against a rock and fall,
I dust myself and still stand up tall;
And then I smile.

Evil surrounds but I've got the peace of God inside of me,
Such that surpasses every knowledge and undesrtanding;
So I'll always smile.

Everyone else says there's a casting down,
But I say there's a lifting up, all is sound;
And I can smile.

Against the wish of evil, I smile.

To keep my path shining brighter and brighter, I smile.

To chase away the forces of sadness, I smile.

He's paid the price for me, I owe no debt, so I smile.

His thoughts for me are of good and not evil, so I smile.

All things work together for my good, so I smile.

In all of these things I am more than a conqueror, so I smile.

If God be for me who can be against me? so I smile.

All things pertaining to life and godliness has been given to me, so I smile.

I'm seated with Him in heavenly places, so I smile.

As He is in heaven so am I here on earth, so I smile.

There is therefore now no condemnation for me, so I smile.

The joy of the Lord is my strength, so I smile.

I am the righteousness of God in Christ, so I smile.

With God all things are possible, so I smile.

I am fearfully and wonderfully made, so I smile.

I am created in the image and likeness of God, so I smile.

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me, so I smile.

I KNOW WHO I AM, so I smile!

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
