Take This Moment

Goodgoat has just been singing for a few days and encountered these words (John Bell & Graham Maule) set to music by John Bell – a beautiful poem with words that speak to our depths, creating a space for God and looking for His leading in our lives.

I hope that you enjoy it too:

Take this moment, sign and space;
Take my friends around;
Here among us make the place
Where your love is found.

Take the time to call my name,
Take the time to mend
Who I am and what I’ve been,
All I’ve failed to tend.

Take the tiredness of my days,
Take my past regret,
Letting your forgiveness touch
All I can’t forget

Take the little child in me
Scared of growing old;
Help me here to find my worth
Made in God’s own mould.

Take my talents, take my skills,
Take what’s yet to be;
Let my life be yours, and yet
Let it still be me.

Here’s  a link to it set to music.
