“A Life That’s Rare”

(first draft, December 1971)

Russell R. Cook

 

God, I want to live this life, with you and me, my kids and wife. I know it won’t be seen as real, but it’s how I think and dream and feel. I want to live so others see your love and faith and truth in me. I want you to give to them what you, yourself, have placed within.

This kind of life is rare these days, but I still want it anyway. Not a common life to be achieved, but abundant life to be received. A life that loves and honors Him, stays true and faithful to the end. The kind of life that’s rare these days but I still want it anyway.

And when I hear the skeptic say, “It isn’t real, we’re past those days!” I think of You and remember when You bore the cross and rose again. I look to those in centuries past who kept the faith and held it fast. I know deep in my heart it’s true, It really is a life with you.

This kind of life is rare these days, but I still want it anyway. Not a common life to be achieved, but abundant life to be received. A life that loves and honors Him, stays true and faithful to the end. The kind of life that’s rare these days but I still want it anyway.

I want my heart empty of wrong, my faith in you true and strong. I want a life that's filled with love, just like the one I’ll have above. I want my kids to trust in you and live a life that’s faithful, true. I want their kids to one day say “I saw in mom and dad the way!”

This kind of life is rare these days, but I still want it anyway. Not a common life to be achieved, but abundant life to be received. A life that loves and honors Him, stays true and faithful to the end. The kind of life that’s rare these days but I still want it anyway.

A life that’s real and seen right through, not lived for me but just for you.  A life that will for others be a godly life for them to see. A life that loved and served so they in faith and truth will one day say: “I found the kind of life he knew and will forever follow You.”

This kind of life is rare these days, but I still want it anyway. Not a common life to be achieved, but abundant life to be received. A life that loves and honors Him, stays true and faithful to the end. The kind of life that’s rare these days but I still want it anyway.

And when I’m old I want to see how You, Yourself, have worked through me. To bring my family to Your Son and truly know that He’s the one– who gives a life so true and fair; the one that should not be so rare. I want my life to end in peace, my service here to never cease.

This kind of life is rare these days, but I still want it anyway. Not a common life to be achieved, but abundant life to be received. A life that loves and honors Him, stays true and faithful to the end. The kind of life that’s rare these days but I still want it anyway.
