It Is Time.....!

The clock of life is wound but once
And no one has the power,
To tell just where the hands will stop
At late or early hour.

To lose one's wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one's health is more --
To lose one's soul is such a loss
As no one can restore.

The present only is our own
To seek to do God's will,
Tomorrow holds no promise, for
The clock may then be still.

"I must work the works of Him who sent me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work."

For He says: "In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you." Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

John 9:4; 2 Corinthians 6:2 NKJV

Only one life, 'twill soon be past;
Only what's done for Christ will last!

O LORD, how long shall I cry, and You will not hear? even cry out to You, "Violence!" And You will not save. Why do You show me iniquity, and cause me to see trouble? For plundering and violence are before me; there is strife, and contention arises. Therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds.
Habakkuk 1:2-2 (NKJV)

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness....

It is time for You to act, O LORD, for they have regarded Your law as void. Therefore I love Your commandments more than gold, yes, than fine gold! Therefore all Your precepts concerning all things I consider to be right; I hate every false way.

Romans 1:18; Psalm 119:126-128 NKJV
