It's what I do today that counts,

Not what I plan for tomorrow.

 Will what I put off doing this day

 One day bring tears and sorrow?


Each and every day,

Holds something for me to do.

 Will I accomplish all the things

 That God wants me to?


Each moment every day is filled.

Endless tasks there seem to be.

Will all my earthly "busy-ness"

Count for eternity?


Today is all I'm sure to have

To do my Father's will.

Always my desire should be,

His purpose to fulfill.
