A Heartbeat Away


A Heartbeat Away
By Christine Hare Tate

Your word reminds me Lord
How brief my life is…
My days are numbered on earth.
No longer than the width of my hand!
Since the time of my birth
It has been just a moment to you.
It’s a parade passing by…
Human existence is a breath;
It is a blink of an eye!

Let my footsteps lead others
Down the path of righteousness
Straight to the cross at Calvary…
When you call me home I want them
To know it was YOU who gave life to me.
Lord, remind me I’m a traveler
Rushing thru like a breeze.
This life is a brief stay;
It staggers me to think that
Eternity is a heartbeat away!
