Come Sunday, by Duke Ellington

 

Lord, dear Lord of love, God Almighty, God above,

Please look down and see my people through.

 

I believe that God put sun and moon up in the sky.

I don’t mind the gray skies ’cause they’re just clouds passing by.

He’ll give peace and comfort to every troubled mind,

Come Sunday, oh come Sunday, that’s the day.

 

Often we feel weary but he knows our every care.

Go to him in secret, he will hear your every prayer.

Up from dawn till sunset, man works hard all day,

Come Sunday, oh come Sunday, that’s the day.

 

Today, reflect on what you’re hoping your ‘Sunday’ will bring, and ask God to give you the patience and faith to wait well.
