my favourite things/ today


I would not change a single thing
it is exactly as should be
and with a sigh and great relief
face all my God would have for me

it's knowing God goes with me
that this day holds His design
it may be filled with laughter
or tears may be entwined

our days here may be shortened
on earth our temperal home
or days may see us old and grey
as on this earth we roam

the secret lies in trusting
He knows what's best for me
that He will lead and guide me on
to all He's dreamed I'd ever be

with one hand in the Master's
my gaze set fast on Him
His joy abounding endless
His peace that rests within

I face this gift we call today
with all its unknown possibilites
and like a child on Christmas morn
consider love's great probabilities

He has my very best in mind
sweet fellowship will be His plan
together we will catch a star
or do anything I think I can

I 'm not sure I'll move a mountain
or swim the deepest sea
but I know how good this day will be
because my Jesus walks with me
