You give us a lifetime

💚

I will be your God throughout your lifetime
(Isaiah 46:4; NLT).

1. You give us a lifetime
To practice your presence;
A lifetime to ask
Your forgiveness, Lord, too.

2. You give us a lifetime
To care about others;
A lifetime to grow,
And become more like you.

3. You give us a lifetime
To bear our cross gladly;
A lifetime to follow
Your steep, narrow way.

4. You give us a lifetime
To thank you for all, Lord;
A lifetime to love you,
Cling tight, hope, and pray.
