If My Life Should End Today
May I view all things in the mirror of eternity,
Waiting for the coming of my Lord,
Listening for the last trumpet call,
Hastening unto the new heaven and earth.
Order this day all my communications according to thy wisdom,
And to the gain of mutual good.
Forbid that I should not be profited or made profitable.
May I speak each word as if my last word,
And walk each step as my final one.
If my life should end today,
Let this be my best day.
-Morning Dedication, Valley of Vision
