Numbered Days

Sixteen thousand-some-odd days
Left for me to give You praise
On this earth that You have giv’n
Then eternal life I’m liv’n

So, how shall I use each one
‘Til this life on earth is done
Lord, I’ve made so many plans
Yet, my time is in Your hands

Help me to surrender all
Lest to self and sin I fall
Pride, greed, hate and all the rest
Each of them thinks he knows best

But, it is Your way divine
That will keep my heart all Thine
Sixteen thousand-some-odd days
Lord, teach me to know Your ways.
