A Blessed Day

          This day is coming to an end,
          The sun is beginning to set;
          The sky is starting to darken,
          The grass with dew is getting wet.

          Now the fireflies are glowing,
          Some trees take on an eerie form;
          The moon it does brighten the night,
          The crickets chirp til early morn.

          A doe in the woods nestles down,
          All her warmth she offers her fawn;
          And it gladly accepts her love,
          As it will til the coming dawn.

          Darkness has now taken over,
          It s time to return to our nests;
          The trail for today is ended,
          It s time for our much deserved rest.

          Time to count our many blessings,
          Give thanks to our Lord up above;
          For all He has given today,
          Through His gracious kindness and love.

          A near perfect day is over,
          Time for us to sleep for the night;
          A new day will come soon enough,
          When again we ll rise with His light.
