A Moment In The Sun

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.
