Teach me, dear Lord, to savour every moment
Teach me, dear Lord, to savour every moment-
each precious hour, a gift which is unique-
for your unhurried guiding hand I cherish
and the contentment of your ways I seek.
When date and time demand my full attention
from frantic rushing let my heart be free,
that I may flow within your Spirit’s rhythm
and live each minute just as it was meant to be.
2. But may I also glimpse the broader canvas-
to all my life, a purpose and a plan-
and let me hear again that voice which called me
before this world or time itself began.
So may your kingdom daily be my watchword
and may the pulse in all my life be praise,
across unfolding years and changing seasons,
until with you I walk through everlasting days.
