Seize The Day
Everyday I confront choices on this weary road through history.
It seems to me that I’m missing out and why is it a mystery.
But my God says he is with me, and the choice is already made.
He says seize the day and do it now because life will soon fade.
Yes, Lord, I’m going to seize the day, this very day.
I’m going to make you famous and give you glory in everything I say.
Seizing every opportunity, trusting, and working impossible task.
I will seize the day, go in your strength, and do all that you ask.
Sometimes I have to admit, God, that I don’t want to be courageous and strong.
But at the end of a long hard day, I’d rather be the one who was not wrong.
So in the mean time I’ll stay the course and move forward in obedience.
I would rather strive for the goal of the high calling with your love and patience.
I will, Lord, seize the day and walk out the light.
Striving for the goal of the high calling of Jesus Christ.
