At your pleasure

 

Lord,

We  live entirely at your pleasure,
Whether we believe in you, or not.

You make us, you watch over us, and love us,
As you wait for us to come to you, our God.

When you take our breath away we turn to dust, Lord,
And our souls return to you in heaven above.

So, help us all to seek you while we’re here, Lord, 
Our Maker, our Sustainer, and our Judge.
