When I wake up to the morning sun

1
When I wake up
To the morning sun
Before the day has come and gone.
I will open
All my heart to You
And from my spirit sing this song;
  What a wonder,
What a mystery
That You would be
The life in me.
Dear Lord Jesus,
How I love You.
Today, be all that I pursue.
2
When I lay down
To the moonlit sky
And weary eyes begin to fade
I will thank You
For another day
And for the life in me You gave.
  What a wonder,
What a blessing;
The joy You bring
In everything!
Dear Lord Jesus,
How I love You.
Tomorrow, be all I pursue.

I love this song. It's so fresh an expression of gratefulness to the merciful Lord Jesus. Its like What a Friend We Have in Jesus.
