The day I noticed the brightness of the sun
The day I realized how the moon lightens the dark
The day I listened to the humming of the bird
Their sweetness touched my soul and I rejoiced along with them
The day I picked up my Bible
And I saw that not my title
Nor my intelligence has kept me this far
The day I heard the story is how loving you are
At first, I did not believe till I felt your love
The day I opened my eyes to see the beauty of nature
I was bounded with the creator whose marvelous grace I enjoy
The day I saw the birds dancing, singing and soaring high in the sky
I looked at the leaves on the trees blowing left and right in praises to you
Fresh drops of water touched my feet,
How could I have not seen and known all these beauty before?
You have lived me even before I was conceived
You sent your only son to die for a dinner like me
How could I have not seen and known that it’s your everlasting love that keeps
And sustains me?
Waking and knowing that for have granted me another day blesses my soul
Take hold of me and never let me depart from you oh lord!
When I opened my eyes and heart to see
How gracious and loving you are,
All things changed for the better
That’s the day I fell in love with you.
