Everyday is filled
By joy and dismay
Equal parts of life
Hold every breath we take

A wise man makes
The best of time
Too soon our journey ends
Life walks so quickly away

Away from goals
Away from friends
Guard each moment well
The end comes all too soon

Now to laugh
To sing with glee
This is the day
God is with me

I can face
That pain of days
Knowing Christ
Loves me always

Therefore I pray
For a heart of joy
And lift my arms in gratitude
Jesus is my good
