Speedily Seeking

"As for man, his days are as grass... But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him" (Psalm 103:15,17)   "The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe" (Proverbs 18:10).  "Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts" (Zechariah 8:21).  "[Stephen] saw the glory of God... and said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God" (Acts 7:55,56). 

The days of man are like the grass,
As transient as a fading flower. 
How quickly does our lifetime pass,
But God is an enduring Tower. 

No wonder, then, we're called to run
And find our Refuge in the Lord 
Before life's little day is done;
Let not His calling be ignored!

So let us go to God with speed 
And seek the Lord of hosts today! 
The Lord who knows our every need
Now bids us to draw near and pray.

O Lord, like Stephen then, when speaking,
Had seen the glory of Your face,
We speedily are likewise seeking
The timely mercies of Your grace.
