ONLY ONE LIFE

VERSE 1 
It matters so little 
How much you may own 
The places you’ve been 
Or people that you known
For it all comes to nothing 
When placed at His feet 
It’s nothing to Jesus 
Just memories to me 

VERSE 2 
You can take all the treasures 
From far away lands 
And take all the riches 
you can hold in your hands 
And take all the pleasures 
Your riches can buy 
But will it help 
When it’s your time to die 

CHORUS 
Only one life 
So soon it will pass 
Only what’s done for Christ will last 
Only one chance to do His will 
So give to Jesus all you days 
It’s the only life that pays 
When you recall 
You have but one life 

VERSE 3 
The days pass so swiftly 
The months come and go 
The years melt away 
Like new falling snow
Spring turns to summer 
Then summer to fall 
Autumn brings winter 
Then death come to all 

CHORUS 
Only one life 
So soon it will pass 
Only what’s done for Christ will last 
Only one chance to do His will 
So give to Jesus all you days 
It’s the only life that pays 
When you recall 
You have but one life
