Look or Lose

"Is the LORD'S hand waxed short?  Thou shalt see now whether My word shall come to pass unto thee or not" (Numbers 11:23).  "Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee: and let such as love Thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified" (Psalm 70:4).  "Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life" (Proverbs 4:23).  "Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward" (2 John 8). 

The time has come to look or lose: 
Believe the promise of the Lord,
For if we foolishly refuse,
We stand to lose a full reward. 

The hand of God shall not fall short
Of doing all He said He'll do,
So let us trust our Lord's report
With all His faithfulness in view. 

Now let our God be magnified:
He is our Refuge and Defense! 
We look to Christ who for us died
To keep our hearts with diligence.

O Lord, we look to You alone
To guard us lest we lose our grip
On Your eternal truths made known,
And so from our steadfastness slip.
