Beauty of a Moment


oh, to see the beauty of a moment
despite the cruel and unforgiving
work of the hands of time
ravaging on through our lives
reminding us of our frailty
of our vapor-like state
and yet each breath we take
brings to mind Your promises
You will never leave us
nor forsake us
as we cling to Your omnipotent hand
the seasons change
we live and we die
and only You remain
steady, as time marches on
a shelter in the storm of life
a guiding hand through the night
each moment is beautiful
in its demise
each second a picture of splendor
and as we stand in awe and wonder
You wrap Your arms around us.
