my song of today cjm music

Oh! how I love Thee, Jesus! my soul aspires to Thee –
And yet for one day only this simple prayer I pray!
Come reign within my heart, smile tenderly on me,
Today, dear Lord, today.
Today, dear Lord, today.  

What care I for tomorrow? Whatever it may bring;
Let not your love forsake me, and worries have their way,
But let my heart stay pure, enfold me in your wings
Today, dear Lord, today.
Today, dear Lord, today.

O sweetest Star of heaven! O Virgin, spotless, blest,
Shining the light of Jesus, guiding Him my way!
O Mother! ‘neath thy veil let my tired spirit rest,
For this brief passing day!
For this brief passing day!

Soon shall I fly away, to praise you my desire
Then shall be mine the joy that never knows decay;
And then my lips shall sing, with heavn’s angelic choirs,
Th’eternal, glad today!
Th’eternal, glad today!
