What is Life?

For what is life
But joy and strife
The sound of a heart beating
A world that is fleeting
With every breath
We mock death
In achievement
Or bereavement
Still we persist
Not merely to exist
But to live in truest form
Break the pattern of the norm
Soak in moments that seem
Made up only of dreams
We unwrap Your presence
To discover the essence
Of all that we perceive
Shaped in Whom we believe
Christians by title
To serve with hands not idle
For what is life
But joy and strife
A place of measure
To inherit eternal treasure
Battles fought with humility
To restore the soul’s tranquility
In the Spirit’s rhythm
We are found forgiven
Our hope runs deep
Faith in You we keep
In joy or strife
Christ’s love fulfills this life!
