My Vision Song

129. My Vision Song

Sometimes I lose track of what spurred me to write a song and that’s true of this song. It can be sung to the tune of “Be Thou My Vision.” It has within it so many things that are important to me—the value of time and the ways I spend it; my search for balance; how the truth lies in between the day I was born and the day I die—the truth about how I respond to God in my efforts to make peace. The song also includes that Jewish concept of the need to repair the world—how do I do that? And the last verse is my prayer. As I read it, I remember that I wrote this song after being at a peace workshop led by Wayne Lavender. And people were talking about being overwhelmed and their constant need to start again. And so the song was written to encourage us all.

Prayer for Living My Days

—–

Time marches forward from day unto day,

I spend my moments in so many ways,

Help me to balance the hours that I live,

Guide me in reaching out to love and to give.

—–

One day I was born and then one day I’ll die,

Years pass between and the truth there does lie,

How I respond to God calling me to make peace,

How I repair the world in my days and my weeks.

—–

When doubt overwhelms me, give strength to my heart,

Help me be faithful and make a new start,

God give me wisdom to transform the strife,

God give me courage to live all of my life.
