What Today I Must Do

Again I am given,
Another day to age and witness.
Another day to know I am blessed and protected,
With a faith that God accepts.

Expressed is appreciation,
For everyone that I've ever met.
Although I am still a work-in-progress,
I can and will forgive and forget.

And what today I must do,
With a giving of my next breath...
Is to do my very best to benefit,
Regardless of a test that upsets.

And what today I must do,
Regardless of a test that upsets.
Is to do my very best to forgive and forget.

And what today I must do,
Regardless of a test that upsets.
Is to do my very best to forgive and forget.

Again I am given,
Another day to age and witness.
Another day to know I am blessed and protected,
With a faith that God accepts.
God knows I'm a work-in-progress.

Today what I must do,
Is forgive and forget.
With a knowing I'm a work-in-progess.

And today what I must do,
Is forgive and forget.
With a knowing I'm a work-in-progess.
