According to Peter, this song came to him when he woke up one morning. I worked with him on the English lyrics to help with the flow and rhyme. - Elton, December 10, 2007


Every morning when I wake up,
I will start the day with You.
'Cause to start the day without You
Is impossible to do.

When I think what You have done
How You died and overcome.
Is there any reason not to believe
That You are God's own Son?

I know that You are near,
You make things always clear.
Your Grace is all I need,
I bow here at Your feet.

Every day here in my hometown
I tell the people to believe
In a friend who never leaves them,
And with open arms receive.

Let me tell You dearest Jesus
You pick me up when I'm feeling blue.
Lord I love You with my whole heart
And find myself in You.

I know that You are near,
You make things always clear.
Your Grace is all I need,
I bow here at Your feet.

Every morning when I wake up,
I will start the day with You.
'Cause to start the day without You
Is impossible to do.

I Love You.
