The night begins to fade as dawn ascends.
Then sunlight streaks the sky
and darkness ends.

When people wake from sleep,
what do they find?
Renewed anxiety? No peace of mind?

For those who follow God,
each brand new day
Just brings another chance to live His way.

As we seek rest beneath God’s mighty wings
The Lord will grant us peace;
our hearts will sing!

To reach that sheltered place
so close to God,
To join His family, to know His love,

All He requires is that we believe
In Jesus’ saving grace—
His gift, receive.

John 3:16
This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. (The Message)
