Sand through the Hand
Life flows so quick like golden sand
Each grain a day passed through godís hand
Each moment precious as a jewel
And Yet I waste it like a fool.
You looked at me my heart to sway
But blind I was and looked away
Back to desires and lust and greed
From which You begged me to be freed.
I never ceased to grab and hoard,
Always forgetting my sweet Lord,
That Love lives on within inside
From whom no soul would wish to hide.
I pray to you Lord, to be so kind
And give me strength to ignore my mind,
So from your path Iíll never stray
And at your feet my life will stay.
Those things for which once I craved
You showed inside and I was saved,
Lifeís flow became a flow of bliss.
Each grain a chance Your feet to kiss.
And if ever off I stray again,
Please call me back to holy Name
That Light inside me, make itglow,
Your endless love, please let me know.
