“Serving God!”

by Edward Nickerson

I'm up today, to greet the dawn,
And for my Lord, I still press on!
It's Sunday, I should do my best!
A time to work, yet day of rest!
Today, I'll serve my Lord once more.
Before I rest on God's heaven shore!

For no one knows the time I have,
Or if my days, some good, some bad!
If sunshine greets me this year through,
If dark clouds summon, my life too.
Today I ponder, I watch, I wait,
One day I enter through Heaven's Gate!

My goal – to serve my God! I can!
Some content, that walk on sinking sand.
Though I may slip along life's way,
My Jesus there! To make my day!
The sea of life may "crash and burn!"
Again today! To my Lord I turn.

The hand of life so wrinkled and torn,
It's Sunday, rejoice to greet the morn!
So many days since then my birth,
Many years ago, Christ came to earth.
His grace and mercy came "O" so far!
That I once ascend, "those gates ajar!"

You wonder how I seem so sure,
I trust God's promise! His love so pure.
It's not just story, it's not just talk!
He placed my feet on solid rock!
That rock upholds my life today!
I serve Him in His trusted way!

So trust in God! When all around,
The world explodes with painful sounds.
Avoid God's voice, reject His call,
And many want to gain life's all!
But listen close to God's still voice!
And as the sun comes up
You can, you will in Him rejoice!

Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God, which is your
reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that
ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect,
will of God.”
