This world is full of broken things in every land on earth,

I see each day much emptiness – for little is of worth.

Sometimes I wish for earthly wealth, and rich security;

But then I catch a brighter view of God’s eternity!

Someday I’ll live at home with God,

Where things are never broken!

Where no one knows a doubt or fear—

Nor harsh words ever spoken.

O Lord, help me to live each day, Your way.

And then I’ll live in heav’n with you always.
