I’m sailing down the river
Delightful, yes I know…
The sun is shining brightly
And the gentle wind does blow.
My hair is all awry
Defiant curls tousle all about…
Methinks they protest, just a wee
But heck, those cares I toss straight out!
For I am to enjoy this sunny day
To smile away the frowns…
As today, I wish to think of Peace
And not, of my ups and downs.
I see the trees on either side
Green, lush, so full of life…
Swaying slowly, gently bowing
Thanking Him for giving life.
The sky is blue, light and clear
No dark clouds, no tempest seen…
Embrace the pleasures of this fine day
Its beauty… Ah, the splendour so serene!
The ripples on the river
Artistically, bob here and there…
As the boat sails on by slowly
Happily, bearing its precious ware.
Excited faces all around me
Grinning, from ear to ear…
Like me, they too, decided
To toss away their fears.
Today, we are grateful, most thankful,
“Oh, yes!” we loudly say…
We thank You, Lord, with all our heart
For the blessing of this day!
