A Hymn based on
Psalm 31:14-15; John 15:5; Ephesians 5:15-16
I fight with time. I rush. I wait.
I plan. I press. I stay up late.
I try so hard to regulate
What only You control.
Great Lord of time, above its flow,
You give us time to change, to grow,
To learn to live the love we owe
To You, all-gracious God!
In Christ we learn what time can be:
A frame for love unrushed and free,
The pure and perfect harmony
Of life immersed in You.
The fruitfulness that we pursue
Flows not from what our plans can do
But Lord, from living all in You,
The ever-fruitful Vine.
