Oh, Lord today I was breathless,
when I saw the beauty of Your love
while gazing at the sunrise . . .
peaking through the skies above.
I watched as the stars disappeared,
fading with the dark of night
as the early morning rays beamed
with the hope of eternal light.
As the sun rose before me,
a crimson glow was all I could see
oh, Lord today I was speechless
as Your beauty surrounded me.
How I cherish these mornings,
when I get a glimpse of You
spreading Your mercy around
so Your glory can shine through.
Lord, You gave me this sunrise,
with just the stroke of Your hand
oh, Lord today I was breathless
as Your love lit up the whole land!
King James Version
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me
shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.”
Deborah Ann Belka
