My life it passed so quickly,
All around my friends had dropped,
I realised then how short life was,
For mine had almost stopped.
Yes! I had wandered on life’s way,
Not sharing what I got,
Until I realised what a waste,
I had not achieved a lot.
I thought I lived a useful life,
‘Til I could work no more,
Then I found God’s treasure trove,
And what he had in store.
I learnt about our Saviour, Christ,
The Spirit and much more,
What a difference God had made,
To the life I’d lived before.
I learnt from God that I must give,
To care for young and old,
To stand up for our Saviour, Christ,
To speak up and be bold.
He taught me how to kneel and pray,
As a Christian where to start,
And how to live a life for Him,
With Jesus in my heart.
