About Today

 Dear fellow-creatures, praise our God of love
That we are so admonished that no day
Of conscious trial be a wasted day... 
 W.H.Auden from Canzone

When I try to bear tomorrow’s care
It steals the strength I need
To do the task that this day asks
Of me…

Tomorrow’s care is always there
So help us Lord, I pray
To seek to do our best for you

To borrow from tomorrow we cannot;
Time's forward flow
Pours from a place where by God's grace
We go
