ONLY ONE LIFE

Lanny Wolfe

It matters so little how much you may own

The places you’ve been or the people you’ve known

For it all comes to nothing when place at His feet

It’s nothing for Jesus, just memories to keep

 

You may take all the treasures from far away land

And take all the riches you can hold in your hand

And take all the pleasures your money can buy

But what will you have when it’s your time to die?

 

* Only one life so soon it will pass

Only what’s done for Christ will last

Only one chance to do His will

So give to Jesus all your days, it’s the only life that pays

When you recall you have but one life

 

The days pass so swiftly, the months come and go

The years melt away like a new fallen snow

Spring turns to summer, and summer to fall

Autumn brings winter, and death comes to call
