Teach Us to Number Our Days
by Marty Goetz

Album: Hope of Glory
by Marty Goetz


Lord You have been our dwelling place
In every generation
Day out and day in, Your love, Your grace,
Sustains every living thing
But like the grass, these creatures You’ve made
We grow soon to wither and fade
Then You’ll say, “Return, O children of men.”
So help us learn this lesson ‘til then…

Chorus:
Teach us to number our days
That we may gain a heart of wisdom
Teach us to number our days
To be glad to rejoice in them

O how we love this time this place
But it’s not our destination
We struggle we strive to run this race
With all of the strength we can bring
Then in what is but the blink of an eye
We finish our years like a sigh
So help us now, Lord show us how
We can redeem days that pass like a dream

Chorus:
And teach us to number our days
That we may gain a heart of wisdom
Teach us to number our days
To be glad to rejoice in them
For a thousand years in your sight
Is merely a watch in the night
So before they all fly away
Teach us to number our days

Bridge:
We’re given to pride so unsatisfied
Still You provide such mercy
In light of our sin, how can we begin
To thank You for placing Your beauty within

Chorus:
Teach us to number our days
That we may gain a heart of wisdom
Teach us to number our days
To be glad to rejoice in them
For a thousand years in your sight
Is merely a watch in the night
So before they all fly away
Teach us to number our days

Yes, before we all fly away
Teach us to number our days

Love this album, Marty and love hearing your delightful daughter, Misha singing background vocals. Your music never fails to bring me into Gods' presence each time I listen to it. Thanks. Joan Kova - guest / Feb 23, 2014
