WHAT A GLORIOUS DAY

Submitted By: hayseed

I WOKE UP THIS MORNING
THE SUN WAS SHINNING BRIGHT,
I SPOKE TO GOD
I KNEW HE WOULD MAKE EVERYTHING RIGHT.

I DIDN'T WANT ANY TROUBLES
TO MAR THIS LOVELY DAY,
I SPOKE TO GOD
TO TAKE ALL MY WORRIES AWAY.

I WOULD CALL UP MY FRIENDS
WE'D SHARE SMILES, GIGGLES AND HUGS ALL AROUND,
I SPOKE TO GOD
PLEASE HELP US STOMP OUR SADNESS INTO THE GROUND.

TODAY IS TOO SPECIAL
TO LET WORRIES MAKE US SAD,
I SPOKE TO GOD
HELP US ALL TO BE HAPPY AND GLAD.

LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE
THERE'S LOTS TO BE DONE,
I SPOKE TO GOD
NOW I WANT TO SHARE HAPPINESS WITH EVERY ONE.

VISIT THE SICK - GIVE THEM HOPE
SHARE A BLESSING WITH SOMEONE TODAY,
I SPOKE TO GOD
TO FIND HAPPINESS - CAST YOUR DESPAIR AWAY.

MAKE THE MOST OF EVEN THE WORST DAY
LAUGH AND DANCE IN THE RAIN,
I SPOKE TO GOD
DON'T BE BITTER - THERE'S SO MUCH TO GAIN.

EVEN THE DARKEST OF ALL DAYS
TOMORROW WILL NOT LOOK NEARLY SO BAD,
I SPOKE TO GOD
HE NEVER WANTS TO SEE US UNHAPPY OR SAD.

SO SMILE, TAKE A WALK, LOOK ALL AROUND
ENJOY EVERY DAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST,
I SPOKE TO GOD
FORGIVE, FORGET, STAY AWAY FROM THE PAST.

FILL YOUR LIFE WHILE ON EARTH WITH A BASKET OF JOY
DON'T FRET, TAKE TIME TO RELAX AND REST,
I SPOKE TO GOD
JUST DO WHAT YOU CAN, BUT DO YOUR BEST.
