Ujamaa Christian Poetry

Life Is Far Too Short

Life is far to short
to spend it frivolously,
Or waste a single drop of time
Or pass it by with ease.

There's work for all God's children,
Examples we must lay;
Every day a blessing with
The privilege to pray.

Don't take up time with silly games
That have no Heavenly call;
An hour wasted soon becomes
A month we can't recall.

Redeem the time - for it is short,
Soon Jesus will be here;
And how we spend our time today
Will suddenly be clear!

I want to face His loveliness,
With some sweet treasure won
From my endeavor here on earth
Presented to God's Son!
