Yesterday I was just a child at play.
I lived in the joys of fantasy day after day.
But yesterday was limited to a very short childhood.
Sometimes I wish I would go back if only I could.
However it is now today, looking forward to tomorrow
Will it bring joy or will it spread much sorrow.
Who can say what tomorrow will bring
So I thank God for yesterday and today I will sing
Praises to he who gives life sublime.
He has control over all things, even old father time.
Yesterday has given me wonderful memories so sweet
I will treasure them and as for today I will meet
Every challenge with the best that I can give
I will let tomorrow come tomorrow for it is today that I live.
I could not change yesterday so I will not dwell on things that might have been.
I will live today as if life were beginning again.
Tomorrow will come and with it I know
That today will have become another yesterday, it will soon leave to go
And thus become one more memory for me
Tomorrow will be today and then I will see
What tomorrow holds in store but right I won’t dwell
On its hopes or its fears be it Heaven or Hell!
God will be there just as he is here today
So I will cling to his love which I know was here yesterday.
