There Are Days



There are days…
I wish I could return
To the days of old
People and things I once loved

There are days…
Yet I know that can never be
Besides that, I couldn’t take with me
Knowledge, wisdom and experience I’ve gained

There are days…
But I wouldn’t want to trade
How the Lord has grown and changed me
Compared to who I used to be

Lord, Today is the day
I want to focus on You
Not on my problems or trials and tribulations
Help me to find joy in You today
