Day One

January 1, 2020—

It’s a New Year, a new decade, and the start of Project 95. That means there’s one clear choice for today’s song of the day: Matthew West’s “Day One.”

Well, every single day Your grace reminds me

That my best days are not behind me

Wherever my yesterday may find me

Well, I don’t have to stay there

As we begin this year, let us remember that we are not who we were yesterday—we are redeemed by Christ, and each new day is a chance to turn away from the past and set out on the path He’s prepared for us.

Thanks for listening today, and happy New Year.


Here are the lyrics in full:

Well, I wish I had a short term memory
Wish the only thing my eyes could see
Was the future burning bright right in front of me
But I can't stop looking back

Yeah I wish I was a perfect picture of
Somebody who's never not good enough
Well I try to measure up but I mess it up
And I wish I wasn't like that

I wish I wasn't wishing anymore
Wish I could remember that nobody's keeping score
I'm tired of throwing pennies in a well
I gotta do something, here goes nothin'

It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

Well, every single day Your grace reminds me
That my best days are not behind me
Wherever my yesterday may find me
Well, I don't have to stay there
See my hourglass is upside down
My someday soon is here and now
The clock is tickin'
And I'm so sick and tired of missing out

I wish I wasn't wishing anymore
Wish I could remember that nobody's keeping score
I'm tired of throwing pennies in a well
I gotta do something, here goes nothin'

It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

It's day one
And here comes the sun
Every morning, every morning
Every morning, mercy's new
Every morning, every morning
I will fix my eyes on You

Every morning, every morning
Every morning, mercy's new
Every morning, every morning
Sun's coming up, the beginning has begun

Yeah!

It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

I'm starting over, I'm starting over
Starting over, I'm starting over
Starting now, I'm starting over
I'm starting over,
Starting over, I'm starting over
Starting now, I'm starting over
