Faith Writings

It's Five O'Clock in the Morning

It's five o'clock in the morning - As I open up my eyes

It comes to me without warning - But it comes as no surprise

In my waking thoughts, with a peaceful smile, once again I realize

That it's five o'clock in the morning - And I'm waking up, as me


I lie there just for a moment - Then I close my eyes to pray

I thank the Lord for the blessings - Ask for guidance on my way

And I stretch and yawn and I find my feet, and prepare to meet the day

What a beautiful life I am living - For I'm living now, as me 


It's a woman's life that I'm living - And I sing a woman's song

I sing it in the morning - And I sing it all day long

Not a single word - Not a single sound - Not a single note is wrong

For at five o'clock in the morning - I'm me 


I spend the days of my lifetime - Doing love and work and play

I try to share with another - As I walk along the way

I stop to help, and I stop to give, and I often stop to pray

As I spend the days of my lifetime - I am spending now, of me


Now it's ten o'clock in the evening - When I lie down on my bed

Another day of believing - And another prayer is said 

And I close my eyes, with a peaceful smile, as the pillow greets my head 

For it's ten o'clock in the evening - And I fall asleep, as me


It's a woman's life that I'm living - And I sing a woman's song

I sing it in the morning - And I sing it all day long

Not a single word - Not a single sound - Not a single note is wrong

For at ten o'clock in the evening - I'm me
