How often is it that we think
This world of ours is on the brink
That maybe we’ll fall off the ledge
Or slip as we sit on the edge
I’m truly stuck in reverse gear
What happens next can hold no fear !
Oh precious Lamb, You are so sweet
This world is kneeling at Your feet
You are the world’s bright shining Star
All that we hope and dream You are.
The times we knew are fading fast
Have we the stamina to last,
What must we do to prove to You,
Praise God and honor all You do !
A little bird there on the wing
His pretty song did choose to sing
The notes did travel on the air
To lend the hour a special flair,
Oh how I wish that I could be
So like that bird, joyous and free !
Whatever war that has been fought
Tis one more lesson to be taught
For no one wins as each has lost
And every war does have great cost.
Sometimes it takes a lifetime long
To hear the ring of freedom’s song
There is a price that all must pay
To win the battle of the day.
Therefore when lives do meet their end
And each has chosen foe and friend
The choice one makes on that last day
Will stand forever, come what may !
