“THE TIME IS SHORT”
(Tune: Must Jesus Bear The Cross Alone #342 CM)
“The time is short” `til we depart,
Each one, to meet the Lord.
We all must give a strict account
Before the bar of God!
“The time is short,” and none can tell
How few his days may be -
One day so strong, the next cut down
To face eternity!
“The time is short.” Sinner, beware!
Sit down and count the cost.
Oh, flee to Christ or lose your soul,
And be forever lost.
“The time is short.” Let us rejoice
Whose Savior soon will come.
Soon we shall hear our Bridegroom’s voice,
And He will take us home!
“The time is short” `til time shall cease,
Sickness, sorrow, and pain!
Yes, death shall die, and we with Christ
For ever more shall reign!
