I have this one moment

this fragile, translucent

piece of time.

I am not promised more

just this one

tick of the clock

May I spend it wisely Lord,

hold it close

and see the treasure

deep within;

whether of joy or pain

wealth or poverty,

see the gift

from Your hands.

May I not spend it

rushing ahead in thought

to all that must be done

to all that I fear may come;

or looking back

to all that I regret

to all I wish to hold.

Give me eyes

to see in this moment

all that Your eyes see.

Engrave it on my heart

with all that You intend

that I might grow

in wisdom and grace.
