A New Day

It’s a new day, a new day that’s given to me.
Everyone gets one you see!
Every day is a gift that’s free!
All of yesterday has come, but now it’s gone.
Yesterday is only a dream.
Yesterday’s hopes can carry on.
Yesterday’s wishes can gleam.

Every new day, is a new chance.
Starting with every dawn.
Every new sunrise can offer new highways to
journeys on.
Oh, it’s a new day, a new day that’s given to me.
Everyone gets one you see.
Every new day is a gift that’s free.
Day breaks and hope renews.
More possibilities to chase.
Clouds or sun on every day.
I rise and shine.
Oh, I’m on my way!
