(James Smith, “Refreshment for the Savior’s Flock at Eventide!” 1871)
“Brethren, the time is short!” 1 Corinthians 7:29
Our time below is brief and uncertain–and therefore very precious.
Let us employ it, so as to improve it. Let us live for God and eternity!
The time is short–oh, who can tell
How short his time below may be;
Today on earth, his soul may dwell,
Tomorrow in eternity!
“So teach us to number our days–that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Psalm 90:12
