Time Is Precious
Is there something you'd like to change-
Something you feel you should do?
Oh, do not hesitate my friend,
For the days are short and few.
Time is just so very precious-
Every moment of the day;
More valuable than fine jewels,
Do not squander it away.
Nothing's ever done yesterday,
And tomorrow has yet to come,
It is only in the today
That anything ever is done.
As you buy and sell, work and play,
Just make sure the Lord is in it,
For there's never a guarantee
Of another single minute.
Time's a gift to be used on earth,
In preparation for eternity,
And what we do within it's span,
Determines our soul's destiny.
Be very sure you know the Lord,
And on Him completely rely;
Obey His word, love and serve Him,
Before Time passes you by.
"...behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."
"Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:"
"See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
redeeming the time for the days are evil."
(II Cor.6:2; Is.55:6; Eph.5:15-16)
