Christian Song | "Time Lost Will Never Come Again"
1576 |July 18, 2020
Awaken, brothers! Awaken, sisters! God’s day will not be delayed;
time is life, and to seize back time is to save life!
The time is not far off!
If you fail the college entrance examination,
you can study and retake it as many times as you like.
However, God’s day will brook no further delay.
Remember! Remember! God urges you with these good words.
The end of the world unfolds before your very eyes,
and great disasters rapidly draw near.
Which is more important: your life,
or your sleep, your food and drink and clothing?
The time has come for you to weigh these things.
How pitiful! How poor! How blind! How cruel mankind is!
Indeed, you turn a deaf ear to God’s word— is He speaking to you in vain?
You are still so remiss—why? Why is that?
Have you really never had such a thought?
For whom does God say these things? Believe in Him!
God is your Savior! He is your Almighty One!
Keep watch! Keep watch! Keep watch! Time lost will never come again—
remember this! There is no medicine in the world that cures regret!
So, how should God speak to you?
Is His word
not worthy of your careful, repeated consideration?
