Oh the canvas of my life

 

Painted pictures tell

 

What will eternity say

 

Did I live my life very well?

 

 

Did I live my life for eternity’s sake

 

Or just follow my own selfish whims

 

Going after earthly things

 

The light in me pretty dim

 

 

Knowing all things will be burned up

 

When the end of the age does arrive

 

Only things done in the will of God

 

Will have the right to survive

 

 

What have I done for selfishness sake?

 

What have I done for love?

 

One will turn into ashes

 

While the other gets rewards from above

 

 

Lot’s of time has been wasted

 

Can I now grow up and live right

 

Doing things for eternity’s sake

 

For the Lord, can I shine His true light

 

 

In Christ there is always redemption

 

My wasted days can turn gold

 

When given into the hand of God

 

He can give wisdom to replace what is old

 

 

Then wisdom is the gift we give

 

Once our eyes have true light

 

Living in the dark no more

 

We can stand up and do what is right

 

 

Fearing not the shortness of days

 

Making each moment count

 

Listening to His instructions

 

Understanding what life is about

 

 

When it is over we all will bow down

 

To the Lover of our souls

 

The jewels in our crown will be for Him

 

All along, He was the goal
