Intro

For surely it will come, You know it won’t be long,

God’s promise won’t delay, You’ll see a brighter day

Verse I

You may be mourning now but God has said

He’ll turn it around and you will dance again

You wonder if there is hope here after

When He already gave you joy and laughter

In time sorrow you feel so alone

But God has a purpose He is still on the throne

Think of the last time when your night was so long

God stepped in and gave a brand new song

Chorus

A Brand New Day, New Season, New Joy, Look to God’s Faithfulness

A Brand New Day, New Mercies, New Hope, Look to God’s Faithfulness

A Brand New Day, New Faith, New Strength, Look to God’s Faithfulness

A Brand New Day, with Deliverance, with Healing, Look to God’s Faithfulness

Verse II

Every trial, every test has a reason, oh, it’s only here but for a season

It’s not happening to you by chance, God controls every circumstance

It has come to give you hope and faith, and to build you up with God’s strength

It’s here to bring victory today, trust in Jesus and you can surely say

Chorus

Forgetting hose things, which are behind

Reach forth to that which is before me

Press toward the goal to win the prize

The upward call of God in Jesus Christ

Verse I

Overlooked and misunderstood

They said I was no good

Yes I, I was the one who was left behind

But empty handed and with nothing to prove

Lord I called on You

And You came to me

Yes You came to my rescue

CHORUS

Jesus You saved me

Freed me

You said I’ll live again

Jesus You touched me

Transformed me

And now You call me friend

There’s no greater honor but to love You

There’s no greater honor but to serve You

There’s no greater honor but to live for You

I live today and it’s all because of You

Yes I live today and it’s all because of You

Verse II

Trapped and alone, yes I was so afraid

To live this dream that You gave me

Yes I, I placed my dreams upon the shelf

But empty handed and with nothing to prove

Lord I called on You

And You came to me

Yes You came to my rescue

Bridge

Yes You are the reason that I live

You are the song that I sing

I give all my worship Lord to You

Yes You are breath and life to me
