Praise God Who Gave this Day to Me

Home » Original Songs » Hymn Texts


This is a hymn intended to be sung in private or family worship at the start of each day. It reminds us of the great truths of Romans 5:1 "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" and Romans 8:1 "Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" which we are so prone to forget. It is easy to begin our day living as if the gospel were not true; as if we needed to earn favor or acceptance from God by our performance. We demonstrate this attitude when we feel dejected by God, far from God, or are oblivious to God's presence with us. We must start our day preaching the truth to ourselves that we are accepted and free before God only because of what Jesus has done for us.


Praise God who gave this day to me;
New mercies I will surely see.
Alleluia, alleluia!
In Christ I am accepted, free
So let me live obediently
For His glory, for His glory.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
