A Reason

Every birdsong at dawn is
A reason to praise you Lord
Every aroma from every flower
A reason to praise you Lord

Every grain of sand left
At the sea shore
After every tsumani is
A reason to praise you Lord

Every tree top swaying
in the wind
After every storm is
A reason to praise you Lord

For only you can ensure
The day after
You are sole author of
The tomorrow

Dawn is your reality
A reason to praise you Lord


A reason 2005 gillena cox
