This Day

Fill this day, Lord,
With lovely thoughts of Thee,
Grant to me your peace
And calm serenity.

Give me sweet patience
When everything goes wrong,
In place of anger,
Fill my heart with song.

If doubts arise,
Lord, garrison my soul
With faith in you,
For you have made me whole.

In times of stress,
Lord, fill me with your calm,
When weak, uphold me
With your strong right arm.

Thus shall this day
End with my praise to Thee
Because your grace
Was still enough for me.
