Our eyes are now open. We see that life is fleeting. Storm clouds may gather While the sun continues to shine. Let our lives reflect Your love, Lord. Help us to leave a legacy of peace and caring and hope. Chains fall off when we realize that the world was not made by our own hands, but God who controls the universe loves us, and understands our needs, our hopes, our chaos, as life collides with our own plans. Let us leave the future to You, as we await freer days to run, to gather together, to clasp hands, to sing.
