Hymn/Song Information

ONE THING NEEDFUL




Why will ye waste on trifling cares
That life which Godís compassion spares;
While, in the various range of thought
The one thing needful is forgot?


Shall God invite you from above?
Shall Jesus urge His dying love?
Shall troubled conscience give you pain?
And all these pleas be urged in vain?


Not so your eyes will always view
Those objects which you now pursue;
Not so will Heaven and hell appear,
When deathís decisive hour is near.


Almighty God, Thy grace impart;
Fix deep conviction on each heart,
Nor let us waste, on trifling cares,
That life which Thy compassion spares.
