When I wake up in the morning
And I commit my day to Thee -
In thankfulness I praise you
Knowing whatever the test may be -
Thy grace is sufficient for me.
As I reach out in prayer
Not knowing your plans for me
As the day unfolds,
I call to mind Paul's pleading - and your answer being
My grace is sufficient for Thee.
So - like Paul I feel honoured in reproaches
And distresses for Jesus name,
I hold in my heart such a treasure store
Of beauty and holiness -
Enough - that His grace to me is the same.
For when I am weak
Then I am strong - in Thy love poured into me,
And tho Satan may try to cross my path,
In the blood you shed - is my victory,
And so surely, "Thy grace is sufficient for me".
At the close of day
My heart o'erflows - In
Thankfulness and praise - and the privilege
Of yet another day - lived for Thee -
And fulfillment of the promise - "Thy grace is sufficient for me".
