Time is So Precious, Lord

May 24, 2012

Where does each day go?
So fast, like a mountain stream
So past, like a distant dream;
So lost, before we know;
So time seems to flow.

Lord, time is so precious.
I need time to get things right,
To sort myself out, to understand,
To get it all together, to see your hand.

Yet I start here, here and now,
This very moment, little by little,
Stone by stone, as a wall is laid.
So thought by thought my prayer is prayed,
And prayer by prayer my hope is made.

Lord, please give me the gift of time.
