Only One Life

C.T. Studd (1860-1931)

IMG_0351Two little lines I heard one day,

Traveling along life’s busy way;

Bringing conviction to my heart,

And from my mind would not depart;

Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,

Only what’s done for Christ will last.

 

Only one life, a few brief years,

Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears;

Each with its days I must fulfill,

Living for self or in His will;

Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,

Only what’s done for Christ will last.

 

Give me, Father, a purpose deep,

In joy or sorrow Thy word to keep;

Faithful and true what e’er the strife,

Pleasing me in my daily life;

Only one life, ‘twill soon be past,

Only what’s done for Christ will last.

 

Only one life, yes only one,

Now let me say, “Thy will be done”;

And when at last I’ll hear the call,

I know I’ll say “t’was worth it all”;

Only one Life, ‘twill soon be past,

Only what’s done for Christ will last!
