My Treasured Place

Each morning I rise up before You
Never taking for granted what I find
Knowing that it is only by Your grace
That the breath inside my lungs is mine

And as I open my eyes wide to You
As rays of happiness alight my face
I am filled with a certain tranquility
That I will never find to be displaced

For the light within shines brighter
Than the radiance of the new day sun
And my heart is lifted by Your grace
Pointing to the place my faith has won

For even though all I see around me
In this world will soon turn to dust
There is only one thought that moves me
To live eternally your love is a must

For only you alone could give to me
A reward that I could never earn
And only by believing in your grace
Was my treasured place in heaven born.
