Live Your Days

In November we remember

Those who’ve gone before

Some who lived their length of days

Some hardly out the door

Candlelight and faces

Visits to the grave

Sorrow for the sadness

Of those we could not save

 

Cold winds from the north

At the dying of the year

Gone but not forgotten

Still we shed a tear

Loved ones who watched over us

When we were first newborn

November we remember them

At peace now no alarm

 

I know what they would say to me

Wisdom sound and clear

Live today and live it well

God is very near

Guard your heart in holiness

Be peaceable with all

Day by day walk the way

Follow Christ’s footfall
