DAY WONDROUSLY COMMENCED
The day my life commenced … wondrously great
Propels each endeavour as good success
Surely designed and authored by the Lord
Who grants grace, sufficiently abundant
Toward grand fulfillment, never worthless.
First among those days is my blissful birth
As parents’ love-fruit who bloomed in their care
Following such are triumphant moments
Marked with milestones, carved and etched in my heart
Worth thanking God for with joyous praises.
My second birth is best of all the days
Divinely miraculous, since Christ-wrought
Quickening my spirit from being slain
Healing with forgiveness my sin-sick soul
Assuring me gift of eternal life.
The rest, I label as marvelous days
Though stained with failures and frustration woes
Others are notable, leaving me scars
But reigning are significant days’ bliss
Spent through faith-function for Saviour’s glory.
My days* to me are Almighty’s presents
Precious against selfishness’ futile greed
Cherished treasures for glad earnest sharing
While consumed devoid of any regret…
Such is my prayer midst human weakness.
*Psalm 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
