The Day

There is no day nearly so wonderful,
no day quite so bright
as the day my child trusted in the Savior
and put her faith in His light

The day of her birth is so clearly etched
in colorful detail in my mind
but the day she trusted Jesus
is the glorious day I prayed she'd find

Each day she lives on this earth
is a day He guides and leads
She need only look to Him
for all her daily needs

Days of sadness and much confusion
Days of loss and despair
are now days she will be strengthened
by the One who is always there

I find awesome joy in the day of her baptism
it is this day I recognize
that strips away the old
and gives her New Life in Jesus Christ!!!
