Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

‘Twill Soon be Past

  • 1. Only one life, a few brief years,
    Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears;
    Each with its days 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.

    3. Give me, Father, a purpose deep,
    In joy or sorrow Thy word to keep;
    Faithful and true whate’er the strife,
    Pleasing Thee in my daily life;
    Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
    Only what’s done for Christ will last.

    5. 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.

    7. 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.

  • 2. 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.

    4. 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.

    6. 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.

    8. 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.
