Teach me O Lord my God
To rest under the shade of your hand
Relax in the coolness of your base
From the heat and dust of the way.
Teach me O lord my God
To accept the limit of my days
The end of my strength
And the twilight of my hopes.
Focus me on the constancy of your love
The extent of your care
The width of your embrace
And the ancientness of your days
Renew my strength as the eagles
Keep me flying high, always
Above the stormy clouds
Of my daily life’s pain.
May i continue to hold aloft
The light of hope for the weary to see
Until they gain the strength to stand
Resisting against the waves.
May I ever row my boat
Onward to the shore
Never giving up until I reach
The safe haven of your loving grace!
