Life is passing quickly as a vapor

SONG: A powerful encouragement to use the time we have now to live for Jesus and become more like Him!

Time is short: Song about time passing

This Christian song about time passing by is a wake-up call but also an encouragement to make use of the precious time we have here on earth and use it to prepare for eternity.

“… whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.” James 4:14.

The time that we have now won’t come back. Are we using the time to lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven? (Matthew 6:19-21.) Time is short and passing by incredibly quickly. Listen to this song for a reminder to use the opportunities we have each day to do God’s will!

Lyrics:

Life is passing quickly as a vapor;
Soon our opportunities are past.
May God give us grace to work and labor.
Only what is done for Christ will last.

Use the opportunities for Jesus;
Just a little while our life shall be.
Time is short and life is very precious.
Soon we’ll go into eternity.

Every day the Lord gives precious chances
To deny ourselves and do His will.
Soon the day is past as night advances.
Let us use the time that we have still.

Satan tries to rob us of our vision,
Burdening our hearts with earthly things.
In each moment make the right decision—
Choose to serve the Lord in everything.

Use the opportunities for Jesus;
Just a little while our life shall be.
Time is short and life is very precious.
Soon we’ll go into eternity.

What a happy life that we experience
If we use each moment for the best.
Soon we’ll be prepared for Christ’s appearance,
And from labor enter into rest.

Use the opportunities for Jesus;
Just a little while our life shall be.
Time is short and life is very precious.
Soon we’ll go into eternity.
