ONE LITTLE LINE I HEARD...

  • I have kept hearing this line in my head "Only what's done for Christ will last", for the last few days. I know Christ can speak to us through His spirit. He has done this many times before.  I know He wanted me to look up the whole quote, so I just did.

    How powerful is Our God?!! He loves us so much. He's so gracious. 

     

    "Two 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, yes only one,
    Soon will its fleeting hours be done;
    Then, in 'that day' my Lord to meet,
    And stand before His Judgement seat;
    Only one life,'twill soon be past,
    Only what's done for Christ will last.
    Only one life, the still small voice,
    Gently pleads for a better choice
    Bidding me selfish aims to leave,
    And to God's holy will to cleave;
    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 clays 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.
    When this bright world would tempt me sore,
    When Satan would a victory score;
    When self would seek to have its way,
    Then help me Lord with joy to say;
    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 Thee in my daily life;
    Only one life, 'twill soon be past,
    Only what's done for Christ will last.
    Oh let my love with fervor burn,
    And from the world now let me turn;
    Living for Thee, and Thee alone,
    Bringing Thee pleasure on Thy throne;
    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 "twas worth it all";
    Only one life,'twill soon be past,
    Only what's done for Christ will last. "
    --- extra stanza ---
    Only one life, 'twill soon be past,
    Only what's done for Christ will last.
    And when I am dying, how happy I'll be,
    If the lamp of my life has been burned out for Thee.”
