Open Hands

I have noticed that so much of life
Is just like grains of sand
Because the tighter that you hold it
The more it slips right through your hands
And maybe itís something that youíre not supposed
To try to hold on to
And maybe everything is
Meant to be given away

God, teach me to live
With open hands
With a day thatís open to Your plans
And teach me to give
God, teach me live
With an open heart
That reaches out right form the start
And teach me to live
Life in Your open hands

I have noticed that so much of the world
Thinks only of itself
And still somehow theyíre always trying
To be like someone else
But maybe we should look differently
At what we have
Then maybe we could live life
In a really different way

God, teach me to live
With open hands
With a day thatís open to Your plans
And teach me to give
God, teach me live
With an open heart
That reaches out right form the start
And teach me to live
Life in Your open hands

What if everything I have
Isnít really mine
What if everyone is
Living on borrowed time
What if the last day comes
In just the blink of an eye
Right now weíve got to get this right

God, teach me to live
With open hands
With a day thatís open to Your plans
And teach me to give
God, teach me live
With an open heart
That reaches out right form the start
And teach me to live
Life in Your open hands

Very good lyrics...I could (in my mind) hear the Gaither's singing this to a melody. Thank you for sharing this.
