Just for Today

Let's take life day by day
And each morning when we awake,
Make up our minds to help our foe,
And others, as on our way we go,
But remember - JUST FOR TODAY

Tomorrow we can be human
And argue with all our might
But just for today,
We'll agree and say,
"Friend, you are right".

Tomorrow we will demand our rights
No matter who has to pay,
But if it helps our fellow man,
We'll forfeit them

Tomorrow we can eat a feast
And forget the waif and stray
But we''ll share our bread with everyone

Today I helped a blind man see
As I guided him on his way,
His old dog licked my guiding hand
And now as I kneel and pray, I hope
When I awake tomorrow - it will be TODAY
