Make Your Day Bright by Thinking Right
Don't start your day by supposin'
that trouble is just ahead,
It's better to stop supposin' and
start with a prayer instead. . .
And make it a prayer of thanksgiving
for the wonderful things God has wrought,
Like the beautiful sunrise and sunset,
God's gifts that are free and not bought. . .
For what is the use of supposin' that
dire things could happen to you,
Worrying about some misfortune that
seldom if ever comes true. ..
But instead of just idle supposin',
step forward to meet each new day
Secure in the knowledge God's near you
to lead you each step of the way, ..
For supposin' the worst things will happen
only helps to make them come true,
And you darken the bright, happy moments
that the dear Lord has given to you...
So if you desire to be happy and get
rid of the misery of dread,
Just give up supposin' the worst things
and look for the best things instead.
