I woke up to a bright day
To see the sun shining down
To light my path and darkened way
As I walk over the sleeping lawn.

It brings hope to my peaceful life,
Every time I see its shining ray of light
That compels me from my restless sleep,
And gives me hope that is stronger still.

It shines on the bed of grasses,
Bringing out their hue and color green.
It brings life to the bushes and trees,
And sweetness to the fruits of the garden.

The bringer of strength and might
To the saddened and broken heart.
The bringer of heat and pleasant warmth
Upon the world, vast and wide.

It makes my tender skin glow,
It makes the frozen water flow;
A welcoming ball of orange light
That makes his home in the sky.
