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!
