This Is Thy Day

1. Father in Heaven, I’m thankful to see
Thy purpose, Thy vision of what life can be.
Knowing this purpose, I come now to Thee
and offer my whole heart to be more like Thee.
2. Often this pathway brings challenge and grief,
But giving of myself strengthens belief.
I still will press on, My promise to keep
of serving my Savior by feeding His sheep.
Father, it’s Thy day;
I’ll walk valiantly this road that’s before me.
In Thy strength I’ll succeed.
Father, I promise to walk in Thy ways,
to do Thy work, to live Thy law,
to take Thy call, for this is Thy day.
