Today, A Wonderful Day - Poem by John G. Nelson

Today is a wonderful break of dawn
And ‘twas here together we sit down
To encourage each one with our ditty
To add to each one a glaring beauty.

It’s a gift from Jehovah to be here
Shrewd is his word, beautiful it be.
We sing to God for his boons to gain
Out of love he sent blessing like rain.

May his grace from heaven, we claim
may his boon grant us the fond desire!
That we may live in this difficult time
While inciting each other to fine work
