LORD, to You I Bring my Cause

LORD, to You I bring my cause;
All that You give me is Yours.
Help me understand my worth;
You raised me up from humble birth.

Thank You for the air I breathe,
The sky above and earth beneath.
The love of family and friends:
Truly, Your goodness never ends.

LORD, behold I stand and plead;
Not my wants but what I need.
Your provision let me know;
Nothing less, and nothing more.

Not affluence, but instead,
Just give me my daily bread.
Give me LORD, the clothes I wear,
And a heart to always share.

Show me LORD, places to go,
Folks to meet, Your love to show:
Give me a place to call home, 
And most of all Your Shalom.

For as Long as Age Its Shadow Casts

I think of times, not long ago,

When I was younger and stronger too:

When all the world seemed all aglow

And I had plenty of things to do.


My mind was sharp, my hands were strong,

And passion drove my every move;

I could navigate ‘tween right and wrong,

And sail the ocean, myself to prove.


But as time went by, and years have past,

I’ve found that life’s a sensational dream,

The adventure ends when it should last

You’re rudely awakened, or so does it seem.


So, we fantasize trying hard to feign

A younger, stronger, more appealing me;

To turn back the clock, we try in vain

And daydream of all we wanted to be.


But the secret lies in being content

With all of life’s rich experience,

And in knowing that we represent

Our generation’s confidence.


So live life well, and live it complete,

Cherish each moment, while it lasts,

And you never will be obsolete,

For as long as age its shadow casts.
