Gentle Life

(david m. bailey)

Gentle Life

It’s hard to live a gentle life every single day
Even Jesus lost his temper in a holy kind of way
Which kinda makes me wonder just what he would say
Perhaps it’s a reminder that it’s time for me to pray

So I’m asking Lord, help make my fuse a little longer
And I’m asking, Lord, help my devotion be much stronger
And it wouldn’t hurt if you could send me a little patience too
And I need that right now if it’s all the same to you

It’s hard to live a gentle life every single day
People make you mad turn and walk away
It’s hard to keep your cool – you know what I’m trying to say
I just wish I would remember to take the time to pray

So I’m asking Lord, please help me find a deeper grace
And I’m asking, Lord, help me keep my eyes upon your face
Cuz when I’m watching you there’s a gentle way to live
Taking less and learning how much more there is to give

Oh, and thank you for the patience – tomorrow I’ll need more
But I’ll wait til then to get it – more gentle than before
