Moments

Moments of worry, Moments of reaching

Moments are fading and our reach is beseeching

Moments of weary, Moments of sorrow

Moments are ticking into thoughts of tomorrow

Moments of longing, Moments of shaking

Moments last forever when hearts are breaking


Holy Timekeeper

You hold the hands of time

You hold the hour-glass that’s sifting

Show us Your hands, and the way of Your shaping

Every moment of beauty, in this heart You are making

Only in You will every minute be

A moment of discovery of You – I can see


Thoughts, O God, Thoughts

Thoughts are heavy, Thoughts are strained

Of disasters tomorrow that can’t be contained

Thoughts keep turning, Thoughts fly past

The exhausting, unyielding, never-ending task

Thoughts running empty, Thoughts fighting thoughts

Endlessly thinking and counting the costs

In You there is freedom – O God – help me see

These moments have purpose and faith is the key

In You, I hear boundless thoughts of Your Grace

Each moments is building – till I see Your Face

Help me be Holy, help me stay sane

In these Thoughts and these Moments

That rattle my brain

Hold me close, and scoop up my tears

In these Thoughts and these Moments

Brings Love to my fears

And in my frail body that’s fading away

Whisper Your thoughts in these moments, today

And then I will praise You

In all things that come

In my thoughts and my moments

may Your will be done
