Teach us to realise the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom (Psalm 90:12; NLT).
The Lord gives both death and life (1 Samuel 2:6; NLT).
No one has power over the time of their death (Ecclesiastes 8:8; NIV).
Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour (Matthew 25:13; NIV).
This very night your life will be demanded from you (Luke 12:20; NIV).
Let us hold on lightly
To our lives,
For we cannot know
The day or hour
When God will ask us
To relinquish them.
