More Time

Another year is over; another year is done
And once again we are about to sail
One more time around the sun

A great eternal wisdom
Has set each planet's course
And grace is for his children
Who are held up by its force

But only we determine
If we stay in heaven's sphere
Or heed this little sermon
As we travel through the year

The earth has little reason
To leave its ordained place
But we must through each season
And each morning seek God's face

The earth has no will or choice
As it's journey has begun
But we must choose the Father's voice
As we circle around His Son.

It is not the flaming star that moves,
But rather it is we
So as this little poem behooves
Lord, may my heart ever circle Thee.
