Brethren, the time is short!

(James Smith, "Refreshment for the Savior's Flock at Eventide!" 1871)

"Brethren, the time is short!" 1 Corinthians 7:29

Our time below is brief and uncertain — and therefore very precious.
Let us employ it, so as to improve it. Let us live for God and eternity!

The time is short — oh, who can tell
How short his time below may be;
Today on earth, his soul may dwell,
Tomorrow in eternity!

"So teach us to number our days — that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom." Psalm 90:12
