Dance to the Music

Dance to the music God gives you
A montage of moments is brief
Soon its lay will drift away
A whisper on autumn’s leaf

List’ to the melody playing
And do not ignore its worth
Tomorrow’s sorrows are waiting
To strip the lip of its mirth

The music of this life is fleeting
We see not the end of its song
But we hear drums repeating
Eternity is long
…is long…is long…is long…

Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. Psalms 96: 1
