Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: This life’s too short and filled with pain, To waste our time for earthly gain; It has to be much sweeter there, Why can’t we see? Lord, hear our prayer.
Verse 2: If I could live my life again, I’d keep it free from so much sin, I would not hurt the ones I love, I want to please my Lord above.
Verse 3: When strife is stirred by angry words, Help me to think of Thee, O Lord, Help me to know that Thou art there, Help me to see, Lord, hear my prayer.
Chorus: Why can’t we see? Why do we sin? We must not let the tempter in; O Jesus, make our hearts Thy throne, So we can see we’re not alone.
