Salutation of the Dawn (Poem)

salutation_dawn

Listen to the exhortation of the dawn!
Look to this day and from Whom it’s made!
For it is Life, in this day for which you breathe.
In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence;
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendor of beauty;
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision;
But Today well lived makes every
yesterday a dream of happiness, and every
tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day and its Maker!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn.

 
Psalm 118:24 “This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
