A Psalm about the Shortness of Life

I said
O Lord
let me end the work
You gave to me to do.

So much
must yet be done
before the dark
so little time
before I’m home.

You are eternal
a thousand years to You
is but a passing day.
You scatter ages
I hoard my hours.
Please understand
my need for time
to do Your will
complete my job.

I understand
He said
I do
I only had
three years
of days

and I was through.
