02. This Day

Declaration
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

Yesterday the sky was bright and clear
I could see the sun and I could hear the song
Faith flowed like a river free and deep
And grace was not so hard to be believed
But that was yesterday
And what was close enough to touch
Now seems a world away
So what about this day

This day all His mercies are new
This day every promise is true
Father, help me to believe
Give me faith I need to know You
And trust You this day
This day

Who knows what tomorrow’s light will bring
Tears to cry or maybe songs to sing out loud
But only God can see that far away
And He made us for living day by day
‘Cause He wants us to see
That the God that He’s been every day of history
Is who He is this day

‘Cause You are the same yesterday and today and forever
Through every season Your truth and Your grace never change
Oh, Lord, I do believe that the God that You’ve been every day of history
Is who You are this day

This day…this day

This day Your mercies are new
This day Your promise is true
This day my hope is in You, Lord
This day

Behind the Song:
"This album is full of 12 or 13 declarations of me saying this is what I know to be true, this is what I believe to be true. This is what I pray to be true of my life and my heart so I make this declaration again. ‘This Day’ probably illustrates that point better than any because I really wanted to talk about in a song how quickly I find myself and my emotions changing. One declaration I really wanted to make is, I know that scripture tells me Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. And that means that today, this day, just like that day two or three days ago when I was just on top of the world and really feeling all of the emotion that goes with it, God is just as faithful and just as true and His word and His promises are just as true. I wanted a song that really celebrated that and was kind of an anthem." - Steven Curtis Chapman
