Time to Triumph

"So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom… and let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish Thou the work of our hands upon us" (Psalm 90:12,17).  "Through wisdom is an house built; and by understanding it is established… by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war… Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:  so shall thy poverty come as one that traveleth; and thy want as an armed man" (Proverbs 24:3,33,34). 

Our days on earth are very few;
There is no time for us to waste.
Let us be wise in all we do,
Obeying God's command with haste. 

This is a time for faithful duty,
To build and battle for the Lord,
As God bestows on us His beauty,
That Jesus Christ may be adored. 

A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands,
Shall waste our days, so few in number,
As we are slack with His commands. 

O Lord, for such a time as this,
That we may triumph by Your power,
We're praying that we may not miss
Your purpose for us every hour.
