Rise and Shine

Rise and Shine for this is the day the Lord has made.

What does it mean to receive salvation?
Most say its freedom from eternal sin and death
Can’t imagine I would agree with the rest
We live our lives full of delusion and confusion
Absent from today’s reasons, we yield to stress
Awake from sin people; it’s morning
Realize the wealth of life you’ve been given
Awake children of Christ far and near
Exhale, inhale the breath of new life has risen here.
