Every hour

Every hour, Lord, 
Brings me closer
To the time 
When I will quit this body.

Every second
Brings me closer 
To the time 
When I will see your face.

Every moment
Brings me closer
To the time
When I will hear you speaking.

Every instant
Brings me closer
To the timeless peace 
Of your embrace.
