As I woke up this morning

and climbed out of bed,

A thought of the Savior

came into my head.

It gave me a smile

to start off the day

And helped me make choices

as I went on my way.

I cheered up a friend

who’d been lonely and sad.

I took out the garbage,

even though it smelled bad!

At the store, I wanted

some gum to chew.

I had no money,

so what did I do?

I thought of Jesus Christ,

as I had in my bed;

“Thou shalt not steal,”

I knew He had said.

So instead I went home,

feeling light as a breeze,

For I knew I did right

and that He would be pleased.
