It all seems so important
Everything that I spend my life on
The stuff of the world crowds around me
But like the morning mist theyíll be gone
ĎCause everything I see
Is always changing

With my next breath
Iím that much closer to the end
With every breath
Iíve lost a moment that wonít come again
So Iíve got to see, Iíve got to be
Iíve got to know what Iím living for
That all I do is all for You, Lord
In my next breath

I canít live for the here and now
Help me set my eyes on eternity
Draw me out of the shallowness
Fill my heart with the light of Your glory
ĎCause everything I see
Is always changing

With my next breath
Iím that much closer to the end
With every breath
Iíve lost a moment that wonít come again
So Iíve got to see, Iíve got to be
Iíve got to know what Iím living for
That all I do is all for You, Lord
In my next breath

Remind me that life is short
And every second counts
That Iíd make the most of it
And bring You honor somehow

With my next breath
Iím that much closer to the end
With every breath
Iíve lost a moment that wonít come again
So Iíve got to see, Iíve got to be
Iíve got to know what Iím living for
That all I do is all for You, Lord
In my next breath

Job 14:1 Ė ďHow frail is humanity! How short is life,
how full of trouble!

Psalm 39:4-5 Ė ďLORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numberedó
how fleeting my life is. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath.Ē
