It brought tears to life within my eyes,
The kind which never seem to go away
Touching me deeply within my heart
In a lovely place, where his love stays
Because what His spirit joyfully brings,
Solidly puts in place a forever smile,
Which shines brightly as the morning sun,
Making a days birth become worthwhile.
When one does believe in our risen Lord
Deep within is born a new song to sing
As the one who believes is giving thanks
Feeling the grace loving him will bring
And if tears of sweet happiness fall daily
Then my sweet Lord it will just have to be
For my heart is full of your embracing love
That I want all living in the world to see
There is a wonderful joy which can be theirs
As they open their eyes to this life each day
A pure genuine love who will never leave them
Because in His embrace they will safely stay.
Not that I am speaking of being in need,
for I have learned in whatever situation
I am to be content. I know how to be
brought low, and I know how to abound.
In any and every circumstance, I have
learned the secret of facing plenty and
hunger, abundance and need. I can do all
things through him who strengthens me.
