So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
Psalm 90:12 KJV
The only day you know you have is here,
So set about as if it is your last.
Tomorrow is not promised to appear;
The best day of your life is fading fast.
You know this to be true but still you yawn;
How many days have you survived thus far?
A wise man counts each day as his last dawn
And counts the Lord his only constant star.
The place and time to live is here and now.
Do everything with love while you still can.
The sun tomorrow God may not allow,
So treat today the end of your lifespan.
Get up this instant! Get upon your feet!
Give all that you can give to all you meet!
