A Welcome Day

“This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” – Psalm 118.24

head-scratchingA Welcome Day

This is a day of hope, a day of light.
A golden sun has driven off the night.
And darkest fears can cause me no more fright,
Nor deepest tears in this day blur my sight.
How can this day be anything but bright!
Oh, welcome, day of hope and day of light.

This is a day of joy, a day of peace.
A day when all my inner strivings cease.
When happy expectations find release.
A child’s anticipations find increase.
How could I not be satisfied with these!
Oh, welcome, day of joy and day of peace.

This is a day of love, a day of grace.
Where wrongs of yesterday will find no place.
Nor evidence of injury, a trace.
Nor any sense of hurt one inch of space.
Toward that happy sun I turn my face!
Oh, welcome, day of love and day of grace.
