Time to Live


How long? How short. So live each day the daily way, trusting in God above (Matt 6:11, 6:34).

Forgive, forget; release your debts (Matt 6:12), living in step with the Helper (Gal 5:22–26).

The Clock of Life
(Robert H. Smith)

The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when 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
That no man can restore.

The present only is our own,
So live, love, toil with a will,
Place no faith in “Tomorrow”
For the clock may then be still.

    As time begins to burn itself upon me
    And the days are growing very short
    People try their hardest to reject me
    But in a way, their conscience won’t be caught

    Something’s happening to me day by day
    My pebble on the beach is getting washed away
    I’ve given everything that was mine to give
    And now I’ll turn around and find that there’s no time to live

    So often I have seen that big wheel of fortune
    Spinning for the man who holds the ace
    There’s many who would change their places for him
    But none of them have ever seen his lonely face
