Our lives are so fleeting from the cradle to the grave
Like a moment in the sun
We must know where were going and what we have done
Questions must be answered have I been loving, gracious, forgiving and have I been brave.
We were not born invisible no matter what we think
Our lives can change in an instant of time whether it be heartache or come undone
So where do we go in a moment like this but to the Son
Who with the blessing of the Father can save us when we are on the brink.
So our life is a canvas that God can paint with bright colors
When we follow his way and he welcomes us back when we fall
And He reminds us of our call
That we are not just for ourselves but our sisters and our brothers.
God can make the moment in the Son
Be our life’s calling to share the Good News for life
That we no longer have to live in turmoil and strife
Oh may we take advantage of our moment in the sun.
