Lord, show me how to count my days,
for life is like a single breath:
so swift, the passing of the years,
so brief, the course from birth to death;
and all my labor seems in vain,
however great the wealth I gain.

I have no hope, except in you,
so show me mercy for my sin;
let not my heart be overwhelmed
as I receive your discipline.
In hushed and holy awe I stand:
I feel my pain; I sense your hand.

But why should those who scorn your name
derive enjoyment from my fear?
I keep my feelings to myself
whenever godless ears are near;

yet how the fires within me burn
until, at last, to you I turn.

A stranger in the midst of life,
a rootless traveler passing through,
I ask you, Lord, to hear my prayer,
and not to spurn my cry to you;
but let me find, instead of tears,
sofficient joys for all my years.

Composer: Norman Cocker

Includes Wide Format PowerPoint file!

Updated Format! Beginning in November of 2016, we changed the way we formatted our PowerPoint files. The font is larger and the staff lines are bolder, making the songs easier to read from a greater distance, including smaller screens/monitors in the rear of the sanctuary.

All songs digitized previous to that date are in the "older" format.
