Life Means So Much

Yesterday at church, dad spoke on “Redeeming the Time” and all through his message, this song just kept going through my mind…

Life Means so Much
by Chris Rice
 
Every day is a journal page
Every man holds a quill and ink
And there’s plenty of room for writing in
All we do is believe and think
 
So will you compose a curse
Or will today bring the blessing
Fill the page with rhyming verse
Or some random sketching
 
Teach us to count the days
Teach us to make the days count
Lead us in better ways
That somehow our souls forgot
Life means so much
Life means so much
Life means so much
 
Every day is a bank account
And time is our currency
So nobody’s rich, nobody’s poor
We get 24 hours each
So how are you gonna spend
Will you invest, or squander
Try to get ahead
Or help someone who’s under
 
Teach us to count the days
Teach us to make the days count
Lead us in better ways
That somehow our souls forgot
Life means so much
Life means so much
Life means so much
 
Has anybody ever lived who knew the value of a life
And don’t you think giving is all
What proves the worth of yours and mine
 
Teach us to count the days
Teach us to make the days count
Lead us in better ways
That somehow our souls forgot
Life means so much
 
Every day is a gift you’ve been given
Make the most of the time every minute you’re living
