I used to dwell on many things that to Eternity hardly matter,
But now I sing a different tune, and instead now I linger.
The days are long and there’s work to be done
But God’s graces abound, and I linger.
Like the day I could hardly stay awake
Reading to the kids when it came
A breeze blowing through smelling sweet and cool
Across my face, through my hair, and I lingered.
Or tonight when the baby fell asleep late
And I carried her into her bed
But on the way, my feet did stay
I held her close, and I lingered
Many a time life is just so busy
That my husband’s kisses end too quickly
But then out of the blue,
He’ll whisper “I love you”
And for a moment more, we linger.
As a busy mom with so much to do,
Sometimes all I see are the toys on the floor
But then I walk by
the windows up high
And the view captures me, and I linger.
In the mornings, I spend alone time with God and drink a glass of cocoa
And as I fellowship with Him, the taker of my sins,
Life is full of sweetness, and I linger
