03. This Is Your Life

In The Hands Of God
by Newsboys



 

This is not the warm-up round
This is not a trial heat
It canít be repeated when your time is gone
This is not an infinite resource
Or the prelude to a starter course
You donít send it back if it gets done wrong

This is your life
Treat yourself right
Treat others right
Live like you know you should
This is life
Fight the good fight
Fight for whatís right
Do what you know you should

Every living soul completes
A finite number of heartbeats
This is not the sum of what youíre here for
Every breath you take will be exhaled
Every rising sun will fall
The measure of it all is what you live for

You had a dream, but it got lost in a life of regret
The devil knows you get just one shot
You had a dream, are you still dreaming?
Or did you forget that heavenís calling for your best shot


written by Peter Furler, Steve Taylor and Jeff Frankenstein

Behind the Song:
'This is a song of encouragement. It's about treating yourself right and forgiving yourself, and if you know you've been forgiven, you can forgive others. There's this conviction inside all of us to live as best we can and to live as full as we can. That's really it: the brevity of life and trying to find the fullness in it.' - Peter Furler (Newsboys)
