A Brand-New Start
As spring is bursting forth anew
In songs of living praise,
I lift my grateful heart to You
And wonder at Your ways.
The leaves appear on tender shoots,
The flowers lend their grace,
The trees extend their mighty roots
While plants resume their place.
The birds are building tangled nests,
Bright butterflies appear,
The bees are busy on their quests
And frogs sing throaty cheer.
The sun shines bright to crown with light
Your masterful display
Inspiring wonder and delight
That grows from day to day.
To You, my God, I lift my heart
With wonder swept away,
And thank You for the brand-new start
You offer day by day.
