Today, I Graduate
Today is the first day of the rest of my life;
I can fill it with joy, I can fill it with strife.
I can follow the world and do my own thing,
or follow the Lord, reap the blessings He'll bring.
No longer a child, I can make my own way.
I can choose what to do with my life every day.
I'm dependent on God though for the air that I breathe,
for the warmth of the sun, for the health that I need,
for protection from harm as I walk down the street,
for providing strong faith so I won't meet defeat.
He reminds me that all that I have comes from Him
and He loved me enough to die for my sin.
He gives me a choice, now I must decide...
as I graduate, will I walk by His side?
Yes, I'll walk the straight path from now to the end,
trusting completely my Savior, my Friend.
Thanking Him, praising Him, for all that He's done;
I'm looking ahead...
my future's begun!
