SHORT TIME 

 

As a burning candle 

Is consumed by flame 

So is Man’s soul 

If rejecting Jesus’ name 

 

Life is so short 

When looking back to see 

That young person there 

Was really me 

 

On our way to glory 

Or the other place? 

One brings us happiness 

The other, suffering and disgrace 

 

The gnashing of teeth 

While burning in pain 

Awaits all people 

Covered in sin stain 

 

The gift of God 

Is eternal life 

Away from all heartache 

And bitter strife 

 

NEVER GIVING AN INCH 

 

The Lord kept this man 

For his testimony I’m sure 

Proving that through God 

He’s able to endure 

 

Stopping by to see me 

Each and every day 

Singing praise to the Lord 

All along his way 

 

He is touching many lives 

While in such terrible pain 

His sickness is spreading 

Finally going to his brain 

 

Never giving an inch 

Just trusting in the Lord 

Saying, the Lord will heal me 

This body He’ll restore 

 

The man walks by faith 

And not by his sight 

What an example for others 

While walking in God’s light 

 

SOUL WINNER FOR JESUS 

 

May the Lord humble your heart 

For all people in need 

Help the lost to find Christ 

For them we must intercede 

 

Shed some tears for someone 

And spend the day in prayer 

Hell burns hot with sufferings 

And it’s torments forever there 

 

Stand in the gap for them 

Fast and pray today 

Be a witness for Jesus 

Let nothing stand in your way 

 

Have you sat so long in piety 

Numbness affects your thought 

Who leads you to know 

By Christ’s blood you were bought 

 

Be a soul winner for Jesus 

Help save a life from hell 

In Jesus there is victory 

In us His Spirit dwells 

 

TURN AWAY MY FRIENDS 

 

One man’s loss 

Is another man’s gain 

That’s the way it works 

In this world of pain 

 

It’s mine all mine 

Everything belongs to him 

People want only riches 

As far as the eye can see 

 

Only thinking of themselves 

Their minds full of greed 

Doing wicked things 

To satisfy their need 

 

Never knowing the Lord 

Or helping out a neighbor 

Just only reaping sorrow 

For the fruits of their labor 

 

Turn away my friends 

From this world of sin 

Give your life to Jesus 

And paradise you’ll enter in 

 

THE TOY 

 

Once there was a lad 

Who made a special toy 

He loved it very much 

Giving him many hours of joy 

 

One day while he was playing 

He set the little boat down 

When he finally came back 

It was no where to be found 

 

Later, passing a store window 

And seeing what he had lost 

He wanted the toy back 

Regardless of the cost 

 

Now you’re mine again 

The lad was proud to say 

I’ll never leave you anymore 

And from me don’t sail away 

 

People are like the boat 

Sailing away from the Lord 

The Creator bought us back 

And wants our lives to be restored 

 

SALT OF THE EARTH 

 

The brilliance of God’s glory 

Is there for all to see 

The radiance of Lord Jesus 

Reflects upon you and me 

 

Brighter than any star 

In the darkest night 

The people of the Lord 

Shine forth with His light 

 

We are His body 

With legs, arms and hands 

Always wanting to help others 

Just as the Lord commands 

 

Loving God with all our hearts 

And our neighbors too 

Jesus is living in us 

And there’s nothing we can’t do 

 

The salt of the earth 

With distinctive taste and savor 

Are people doing God’s will 

And never losing their flavor 

 

A WISE MAN KNOWS BETTER 

 

A wise man knows better 

Than to seek changes he cannot control 

But a foolish man runs blindly 

To offer the world his eternal soul 

God made man is His image 

 

And gave him freedom of his will 

Man worships creation and not the creator 

And he is worse for it still 

The Father gave us His Son 

 

Accepting Him takes away our sin 

This does not mean we sin no more 

We try not to, because He abides within 

If you look at how the wicked prosper 

 

Things in this world are easy for them to do 

They will gain the world, but miss the savior 

God’s word on this is very true 

God’s word never returns to Him void 

 

It is always accepted by at least one 

But there are many that reject it 

And it’s been that way since man begun 

 

MY BROTHER’S KEEPER 

 

Am I my brother’s keeper, Lord? 

You told me I should be 

Why do I hurt my Brother 

Then run and pray to thee 

 

Do I hold his sin up 

So all can see it, under his face 

Or do I tell him about mine 

Together praying in a silent place 

 

The wicked can’t wait to see 

The good fall by the way 

Christians are under watchful eyes 

We must renew faith everyday 

 

I stand upon the word of God 

And know it to be true 

When you point your fingers at someone 

There’s three pointing back at you 

 

Jesus said, “Love God” 

And your neighbor as yourself 

Don’t be so quick to judge 

Put condemnation on a shelf 

 

THE BOSS 

 

I’m working for the Lord 

In everything that I do 

Giving my all for Him 

And likewise so should you 

 

Jesus is my Boss 

At church or working place 

People wonder what’s happening 

Always a smile upon my face 

 

With this way of thinking 

And trying to do no wrong 

Just doing our very best 

Because to Him we all belong 

 

Do not be caught sleeping 

Thinking the Boss will delay 

Because He will come quickly 

On that very day 

 

Blessed are the servants 

The Lord they have sought 

For the Son of Man will come 

At an hour you think not 

 

THE LORD WAS THERE 

 

The Reverend led the prayers 

On that joyful day 

Even when it was over 

Everybody just wanted to stay 

 

The church received a blessing 

And the building containing it too 

Many things were done that day 

Before the service was through 

 

Straight from God’s word 

Rang out the truth 

Intense ears were listening 

From the aged to the youth 

 

The preaching and praising 

To God’s Holy Son 

Just got better and better 

And it was really fun 

 

The countenance of God’s people 

Seemed to take on a glow 

Everyone was so very happy 

The Lord was there I know 

 

THE POOL OF SALVATION 

 

Sitting on the porch 

On a warm summer day 

I heard a terrible scream 

From not every far away 

 

Like a shot from a cannon 

To the pool straight and true 

I pulled a little boy out 

He was lifeless and blue 

 

I prayed to almighty God 

Which I had never done 

Then promised, if He saved him 

I’d give anything under the sun 

 

Suddenly, the boy turned pink 

And his life was back again 

His parents thanking God for me 

It seemed very strange back then 

 

Thinking back to those days 

Is a happy memory 

I saved that little boy 

And Almighty God saved me
