 Help with a Hymn, please...

Any information I can get on this Hymn, would be greatly appreciated.
The message of the Hymn is:
Only one life it soon shall pass.
Only what's done for Christ will last.

Thank you,
Bonnie

Hi Bonnie,

I didn't recognise the lines, but, quickly found this on google. Is it what you're after?

[url=http://www.truthandtidings.com/cgi-bin/tt?i=zk593HH2HWWf]Two little lines....[/url]


Two little lines I heard one day,
Travelling along life’s busy way;
Bringing conviction to my heart,
And from my mind would not depart;
Only one life and it will soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one,
Soon will its fleeting hours be done;
Then, in that day my Lord to meet,
And stand before His judgment seat;
Only one life and it will soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Give me, Father, a purpose deep,
In joy, or sorrow Thy word to keep;
Faithful and true what e’er the strife,
Pleasing Thee in my daily life;
Only one life and it will soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

 Re:

Was it, 'Only One Life'?


[b]ONLY ONE LIFE [/b]

[i]This hymn sets forth the value and need for dedication of one's life entirely and unreservedly to God.
Read Romans 12.1 and Acts 9.6
There is another similar chorus that states
Only life, twill soon be past.
Only what's done for Christ will last. [/i]

Musician: Merrill Dunlop, b. 1905

Only one life to offer—
Jesus, my Lord and King;
Only one tongue to praise Thee
And of Thy mercy sing (forever);
Only one heart's devotion—
Saviour, O may it be
Consecrated alone to Thy matchless glory,
Yielded fully to Thee.

Only this hour is mine, Lord—
May it be used for Thee;
May ev'ry passing moment
Count for eternity (my Saviour);
Souls all about are dying,
Dying in sin and shame;
Help me bring them the message of Calv'ry's redemption
In Thy glorious name.

Only one life to offer—
Take it, dear Lord, I pray;
Nothing from Thee withholding,
Thy will I now obey (my Jesus);
Thou who hast freely given
Thine all in all for me,
Claim this life for Thine own, to be used, my Saviour,
Ev'ry moment for Thee.

 Re: Help with a Hymn, please...

Thank you Dorcas and Roniya:

Yes, Roniya...that is the hymn I was looking into, and it just stirs my heart to read those words.
It is my prayer, my heart.

I looked for the words to that hymn, because a boss of mine just sent me an email about what's really important in our lives, and should it end today, it's the people that matter.
well...
yes...I understand what they are saying, but the first thing that came to mind was "this life will pass and only what's done for Christ will last"

Dorcas...
thank you for that poem you found for that is what I will send to this woman in response to her email.

Both of you were perfectly helpful in my quest. Thank you so much for your quick response!!!!

Bonnie
