The regular tick of a watch
The tick tock of a clock
The chiming as the hour is reached
The rising of the sun
The sun sinking below the horizon
The beginning of the working week
Spring Summer Autumn Winter
So time progresses, the world changes and who are we?
With the birth of a child
We rejoice in the promise of new life
With their first words
We find an expression of love
With their first steps
We see them off to explore the world
With their first question
We know they are on course to make their own place in the world
So time progresses, the world changes and who will we be?
Our living promotes faith
Our life provides hope
Our lives present love
Our time to doubt
Our time to believe
Our time to love
So time progresses, the world changes and who have we been?
