Gratefully - Poem by Paula du Lac

I met God in the morning
And thanked Him for his gift
Of a precious new day dawning
For the slow and for the swift. For guardian angels sent me
To guide me on my way.
For strength and hope and energy
To face another day. Content through daylight hours spent
Amid the daily chatter,
My inner peace is Heaven sent,
The lord, my Champion Batter When, at the closing of the day,
I lay me down to sleep
If I can feel I've trod His way,
I'll sleep a dreamless sleep!
