You take us in your arms

 

You take us in your arms each day,
Though we, Lord, cannot see you;  

And carry us along the way,   
Though we, Lord, disregard you.

You hold our hands when we feel scared, 
Though we, Lord, may not know you;

And comfort us when life is hard,
Though we, Lord, soon forget you.

You bear us to our resting place,
Though we, Lord, still deny you –

Until we see you face to face, 
Then, we cannot ignore you!
