Come Unto Him

For what shall it profit a
man, if he shall gain the
whole world, and lose his
own soul?    Mark 8:36



Some people spend their whole lives
Trying to make that extra buck,
Then when they're on their death-bed,
They find they're out of luck.

That's not what life is all about,
No matter what they say,
And no amount of money
Can buy us one more day.....

Others spend their whole lives
Seeking worldly power and fame;
But when they stand before the throne,
God won't even know their name.

For it is easier for a camel
To go through a needle's eye,
Than it will be for a rich man
To go to heaven when he dies.¹

Don't put your faith in earthly things,
Don't trust them for peace of mind;
Somebody else will get them all,
When you leave this world behind.²

No, it really doesn't matter if
You have fortune, fame, or power;
For none of those will save you,
When you face life's darkest hour.

When you lie on your deathbed,
Only one thing will matter then:
Did you take Jesus as your Savior?
Can you call on Him, my friend?

For Jesus said "I am the way" ³
That leads to heaven's gate:
No one comes in, except by Him;
Come to Him, before it's too late!

¹ And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. (Matt.19:24)

² But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?(Luke 12:20)

³ Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)
