lyrics

VERSE 1
A mist vanishes as quick as it came
The sun rises, sets and rises again
The length of a breath is all it sustains
Once you exhale nothing remains
Such is this life and I confess that at times
I grow weary to think I am merely a blink Nothing more

CHORUS
Is life just a mist of meaninglessness?
Or did you write eternity inside of me?
So that I would long for more than vanity
Is life just a mist of meaninglessness?

VERSE 2
Running in circles only to find my hands never fill the harder I strive
Because the clinching of fists won’t grab hold of the wind
And my toil won't end until I'm dust again

BRIDGE
But you, oh Lord have no number of days
No end to reach no work to complete
Forever you stand your word, your plans
In this hopeless life your beacon will shine
So the hope I have now will not end at my death
This eternal longing is quenched with your breath
I can see it so clear and I’m taken away
On a day never ending, with you face to face
For this time everlasting has now begun
May your face be my daybreak and your glory my sun

TAG
Life is a mist but not meaningless
For you wrote eternity inside of me
So that I would long for more than vanity
