779) Lord, Lead Me…

Amy Grant’s 2013 album How Mercy Looks From Here contains the song Greet the Day.  This song was inspired a prayer Grant heard years ago.  Today’s meditation contains the lyrics to the song, a link to the video, and the simple little prayer the song is based on.

GREET THE DAY

By Amy Grant and Cindy Morgan

Lead me to the ones I need
And to the one who’s needing me.
I won’t assume the worst is true,
And do the best that I can do.
A word of kindness, I believe,
Is heard throughout eternity…

Hey, hey
This is how I greet the day,
I greet the day…

Lead me to the ones I need
And to the one who’s needing me.
And everything that gets me through
Gladly, I receive from You.
All the mercy, all the love,
Pouring down to fill us up…

Hey, hey
This is how I greet the day,
I greet the day…

Hello sunshine
Hello rain
Glad to see you,
Either way

Lead me to the ones I need
And to the one who’s needing me

Hey, hey
This is how I greet the day,
I greet the day
Come on, greet the day
Let’s greet the day…
