Oh, Wake Me Up To A New Day Of Love




Oh, wake me up, wake me up
to a new day, to a new day
when a husband tells his wife
"Darling, I love you. "

Oh, wake me up, wake me up
to this new day, to this new day
when parents hug their child
and say, "Dear child, we love you."

Oh, wake me up, wake me up
to this new day, this new day
when a neighbour drops by
and says, "How can I help you? "

Oh, wake me up, wake me up
to this new day, to this new day
when a stranger finds a door
with a sign, "Welcome here."

Oh, wake me up, wake me up
to this new day, this new day
when the world sings the tune,
"Let us fill the world with love".

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
