I woke this morning, just before the dawn
The body felt better than did the previous morn
And so, preparing for the day that plainly lay ahead
I spoke with Jesus; He is the Living Bread.
After going through the normal preparations
I checked the headlines for sensations
Things had not changed much, since the night before
Democrats and Republicans were trying hard to score
I headed for some good old-fashioned grub,
Fixed myself a pot of coffee, not quite a tub.
Next came some pills to cure and stop the ills
At my age, I would not be running up the hills
And soon I found myself, thinking about today
My Father had created it, for work and also play
What would I do with the hours that lay ahead
I surely would not consider going back to bed.
Pondering the agenda, and thinking what must be done
I looked out the window and once again saw the sun.
The darkness had left; the welcomed dawn arrived,
It was time to get a going, that’s how things survived
Then it “dawned” on me, “With Christ I am secure!”
I AM ONE DAY CLOSER HOME THAN I EVER WAS BEFORE!
So my friend, before you head out to make your great display
Remember, this could be your very last, before the Judgment Day
You need Jesus as your Savior, to wash away your sin
Welcome Him into your heart; He’ll give you peace within.
When that is done, hope will prevail, you too will feel secure
For you will be One Day Closer Home than You Ever Were Before.
