Only One Life, Twill Soon Be Past - C.T. Studd

Only One Life

As of right now, the body count of those killed worldwide in earthquakes, natural disasters, sickness, etc. each year stands at about 56,000,000 (56 million). That’s a lot of human beings snuffed out in one year. You feel the personal magnitude of it when you read of a father digging for his family and passing out when he uncovers the hand of his dead teenage daughter, or when you read of an infant found alive in the arms of his dead mother.
What gives this multitude of deaths an apocalyptic feel is not just its magnitude—around 16,970 times the human loss as the 9-11 disaster. We would be stunned speechless if we watched the car accidents in which 36,000 people died in America this year or almost 2,500 in car accidents in Canada.

It is well worth mentioning what the Bible has to say to us about death, which, by the way, comes to us all. Listen to its words:

Amos 4:12 - Prepare to meet your God.

Heb. 9:27 - And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.

Rom. 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

2 Cor. 5:10 - For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

 

Only One Life Title

Only One Life, Twill Soon Be Past — C. T. Studd

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

Only one life, the still small voice,
Gently pleads for a better choice
Bidding me selfish aims to leave,
And to God’s holy will to cleave;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, a few brief years,
Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears;
Each with its clays I must fulfill,
living for self or in His will;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

When this bright world would tempt me sore,
When Satan would a victory score;
When self would seek to have its way,
Then help me Lord with joy to say;
Only one life, ’twill 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, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Oh let my love with fervor burn,
And from the world now let me turn;
Living for Thee, and Thee alone,
Bringing Thee pleasure on Thy throne;
Only one life, “twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one,
Now let me say,”Thy will be done”;
And when at last I’ll hear the call,
I know I’ll say “twas worth it all”;
Only one life,’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last. ”

— extra stanza —

Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.
And when I am dying, how happy I’ll be,
If the lamp of my life has been burned out for Thee.”

 

Here's a video by Jenny Vang that I believe captures what this page is all about.
