Blessed to be alive

I am blessed to be alive
to be able to rise up this morning
and see the beauty of
dew-drops on the flowers.

I am blessed to be alive
to be able to rise up this morning
and feel the strength
of the rising sun.


I am blessed to be alive
to be able to rise up this morning
and enjoy the treasures
that surround me.


I am blessed to be alive
to be able to rise up this morning
and see my loved ones
happy and satisfied.


I am blessed to be alive
to be able to rise up this morning
and work for
and chase my dreams.


I am blessed to be alive
to be able to rise up this morning
and bow my head
in Your Grace.

I am truly blessed to be alive.
