Time Belongs To God

By Leong Kwok Thye


So teach us to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12
“For what is a man profited
if he gains the whole world,
and loses his own soul?”
Matthew 16:26


WE MEASURE LIFE by length of days,
And extend its span by ingenious ways;
But when life will actually end;
Is ultimately in the Creator’s hand.

What then should be our goal?
To gain the world and lose the soul;
Or walk with God in humility;
And set our sight on eternity?

God measures life by how we live;
The time to Him we give;
By purity of heart;
And the blessings we impart.

Teach us Lord, to number our days;
To think Your thoughts and walk Your ways;
To gain a heart of wisdom;
For the glory of Your kingdom.
