The hands of time the Master set
He put its works in motion
And though you hear its ticking yet
Don’t be a fool, ignore, forget
Its ticking marks your portion.
Its pendulum’s slow steady sway
Is dull and hypnotizing
And precious time can slip away—
Perhaps it stops to tick one day
Without you realizing?
Tomorrow may not come around
And your yesterdays are ended
Today you hear that pleasing sound
The hands of time still going ‘round—
Will the present be extended??
Take time to ponder on these things
Before the final curtain;
The pendulum so slowly swings
Yet life flies by as if on wings
Your clock will stop—it’s certain.
So use the time God’s given you
Don’t waste one fleeting second;
Seek Him Whose every word is true
He’ll fill your life with good to do
Until your days are reckoned.
For none can know the hour or day
Known only to the Master
But signs of times I dare to say
Would show this time’s not far away---
I think it’s ticking faster!!
