Thursday Tunes

Thursday Tunes is a weekly event hosted by S. Krishna, devoted to sharing the music we love.
S. Krishna usually features a new artist each week - just to be different, I'm going to focus on a specific song, because it's the song that hooks me. There are very few artists whose entire body of work is in my MP3 player, but I have thousands of songs I love.

Continuing with the "songs from Elizabeth's wedding" theme, today I want to share This Day by Point of Grace. I love the lyrics to this song, and thought they were especially appropriate for my wedding day - This day is fleeting when it slips away - its about making the most of each day, and choosing to love while we have the chance. Now, I wish you could have been there to hear my beautiful aunts sing it, but this version will have to suffice.

This Day - Point Of Grace

This day is fragile
Soon it will end
And once it has vanished
It will not come again
So let us love
With a love pure and strong
Before this day is gone

This day is fleeting
When it slips away
Not all our money
Can buy back this day
So let us pray
That we might be a friend
Before this day is spent

This day we're given is golden
Let us show love
This day is ours for one moment
Let us sow love

This day is frail
It will pass by
So before it's too late
To recapture the time
Let us share love
Let us share God
Before this day is gone

Before this day is gone

Also appropriate for Grandma right now. You can imagine that I'm crying right now - remembering your beautiful wedding, and hearing the song again!

It IS appropriate for Grandma, huh? Really, for all of us - we have to treat each day as precious, because we don't know what will happen tomorrow. I love this song.
