Just for a short while.

Psalm 39:5-6 (NIV)


You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
    the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,
    even those who seem secure.

“Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom;
    in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth
    without knowing whose it will finally be.



Our eternal Father

You give us life

In Your mercy

You preserve, protect and provide for us

You have numbered our days

Give us the wisdom

To understand Your heart

To give to those around us

What You have placed in our hearts and in our hands

For time is passing by and we are here for just a short while

To give to a dying world the amazing gifts that You have placed in us

Open our eyes to see what you have placed in our hands

Without holding back may we give

For as flowers we bloom and die

Your love is eternal

May men see Your works and glorify Your name

As You shape and mold us

As You polish us just like diamonds are polished

May Your glorious beauty shine in us in a dying world

May the salt preserve that which would otherwise decay

May we remember to number our days

For indeed everyone is but breath

Even those who seem secure
