We will take what happens to us, and we will conquer it. We will not break and we will not give up.

I know it’s been a year.

That isn’t over yet.

Yet I’ve cried more than my share.

When I see what’s on the news.

Just week after week.

It doesn’t seem to change.

Just more and more bad things

Make me want to sing the blues.

It’s day to day...

I just have to say...

Day to day...

And there is no delay...

I do love you...

Every single ray...

I love you too...

As we sit here and pray...

The virus seemed to come.

And knock us to the floor.

It spun the world around.

And then came back for more.

It closed up all the schools.

And took away the jobs.

It stole away our lives.

And now we sit and sob.

It’s day to day...

I just have to say...

Day to day...

And there is no delay...

I do love you...

Every single ray...

I love you too...

As we sit here and pray...

We watch it on the news.

The senseless acts of fear.

Those who lost their lives.

The ones who were held dear.

It seems that every week.

It happens all again.

A shooting on the news.

And nothing changes then.

It’s day to day...

I just have to say...

Day to day...

And there is no delay...

I do love you...

Every single ray...

I love you too...

As we sit here and pray...

Oh dear Lord, my only God.

You said for us to ask.

For strength in time of need.

And now we wear this mask.

You know all of time.

And what will happen, true.

So here now we stand.

And raise our arms to you.

It’s day to day...

I just have to say...

Day to day...

And there is no delay...

I do love you...

Every single ray...

I love you too...

As we sit here and pray...
