How swiftly flies another year
Containing few and precious days.
But God will bless those who will fear
And trust Him, walking in His ways.
Though time is fleeting, truth is sure.
It is our wisdom, then, to trust
The Word of God which shall endure
When kings and kingdoms turn to dust.
Because our time on earth is short
And God entrusts His Word to us,
We seize the day as we report
His Gospel truth so marvelous!
May sureness of the shortness, Lord,
As times of earth and heaven pass
Like grains of sand before us poured,
Now urge us like the hourglass.
