No Yesterday Denied

It is there,
And I have it to give.
My faith! To celebrate.

It's there,
And I have it to give.
My hope! To not let go.

It is there.
And I have it to give.
A thankfulness released,
And to breathe...
For the rest of my life.

I get up each morning feeling gratefulness.
With no reason for a doubt to keep.
I get up each morning feeling gratefulness.
And blessed...
To know I have sacrificed.

And I get up...
With no yesterday denied.
How could I when I'm blessed,
With no yesterday denied.

It is there,
And I have it to give.
My hope! To not let go.

It's there,
And I have it to give.
My faith! To celebrate.

And I get up...
With no yesterday denied.
