Live in the present


God gives us a gift He calls the present
Use every second wisely so you will never resent

Your past or you future and what may have made you blue
You see the past is gone and the future has not come and there is nothing you can do

Except take this gift that God has given and use it wisely now
Then you will see your past will brighten up please let me tell you how

Just live in the present and not the future or the past
It is only what you do right now that truly will last and last

Remember by living in the present that’s the gift God has given you
You will find that your past and your future will never make you blue
