So, I’m speaking at a Teen Conference this week, but after this week’s message, I was reminded of a song. Something to keep my mind focused on God throughout the day. Especially when work can be so overwhelming. I searched and searched for the song online, but to no avail. So what to do? Record it myself I suppose. Yes, even though I should have been packing and heading off to the conference, I took some time out to record a song, to remind me of God’s ever presence.
The song and lyrics are available as you read on…
The song is called
Morning, breaking, songbird in the sky
Sings a lullaby to the night. And I find that
I am waking to the rising sun.
I sing to the one who is the light.
I sing to the God who made the day.
The God who guides my way.
The God who’ll always say,
“I’m right beside you.” So morning, evening,
All day long–I’ll sing a song to the God of Morning.
To the God of noontime, basking
In the warmth of days. Nature seems to
Praise the Lord who cares, still I find that
I am asking when the clouds appear,
If the Lord can hear my fevered prayers.
I pray that the God who made the skies
Who fills life with surprise,
Will help me realize He’s right beside me.
So morning, evening, all day long
I sing a song, to the God of noontime.
To the God of evening, falling
sky is brilliant red
Earth has gone to bed and so shall I.
Yet I find that I am calling on the Lord above.
And He in His love will hear my cry.
I cry to the God who made the night,
The God who brings me light,
The God who’s always right there beside me.
So morning, evening, all day long,
I sing a song to the God of morning,
To the God of evening,
To the Lord of love.
