A NOTE FROM PASTOR ROGER – 9/6/17

A NOTE FROM PASTOR ROGER – 9/6/17

A Note From
Pastor Roger

 

On Sunday, I mentioned a quote in a poem from the great missionary C.T. Studd.

 

Here are a couple verses from that poem:

 

 

"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 it's fleeting hours be done;

Then, in "that day" my Lord to meet, and stand before his judgment 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.

 

 

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 hear the call, I know I'll say "twas worth it all"; only one life, 'twill soon be past!"
