JUST FOR TODAY

Let's take life day by day and each morning as we wake,

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

JUST FOR TODAY

Tomorrow, we can eat a feast and

Forget the waif and stray - but we'll

Share our bread with everyone

JUST FOR TODAY

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 to pray

I ask my God that when I awake, tomorrow,

It will be TODAY
