New Day

from Verhaal by Anne-Marie Van Eeden

/

lyrics

In the middle of the night, when I can’t sleep
And the worries of life seem to break my soul
And I question my sanity

And I can’t help but wonder
When it’s dark and somber
Can you really make whole what is broken

Shall I make it through the night
Can I give it all over to You
Or shall I keep a little back to help you out

Is it really really true what they say
Can I give all my burdens away
Can You take it on your shoulders and make the broken things whole

I have no doubt, I know my troubles are small
They probably don’t compare to many others’
But - can You help me out, I’m tired (asking)
Can You show me how to live

And when I wake up in the morning
And I feel I can carry on
And I open my eyes to a new day, I can sing a new song
And I feel I can breathe a little better
I have the grace where I can say - You are, the New Day.
I wrote a song - about, choosing love and joy
But I find myself acting in the opposite way
I know it’s true what You say
I can - give all my burdens away
- You will take it on your shoulders
and make the broken things whole

And when I wake up in the morning
And I feel I can carry on
And I open my eyes to a new day, I can sing a new song
And I feel I can breathe a little better
I have the grace where I can say
You are - the New Day, You are - the New Day
You are, You are, the New Day
You are, You are, the New Day
