I woke up this morning after a rough night

I prayed to the good Lord before I turned out my light

And He came to me in my dreams last night
Told me do not fear, for you are all right

You may have faltered but I lifted you up
You may have tumbled but I dusted you off
You may have cried but I dried your tears

I love you, Danielle; you do not have to fear

I woke up this morning to a beautiful blue sky
I woke up this morning to a darling little guy
I woke up this morning and I now have no fear

I woke up this morning:
Yes, I am still here
