Just one life upon the earth,
Soon it will be passed.
Just one chance to live by Christ,
Which alone will last.
Like the grass that withers,
Like the falling of a leaf,
It will soon be evident,
That life is very brief
To lay up treasures on this earth,
Is foolish, sinful, greed.
But, as we seek God’s Kingdom,
He will give us all we need.
So, help us to be prudent, Lord,
And to redeem the time,
And causes us to remember well,
This simple little rhyme.
