A Blessed Day
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.
