WHEN IT'S ALL BEEN SAID AND DONE

I woke this morning with the words of an old song playing through my mind.
It is this morning’s meditation and I pray it blesses the individual who reads it.

WHEN IT’S ALL BEEN SAID AND DONE
By: Don Moen

When it’s all been said and done,
There is just one thing that matters;
Did I do my best to live for truth?
Did I live my life for You?

When it’s all been said and done,
All my treasures will mean nothing;
Only what I’ve done for love’s reward,
Will stand the test of time.

Lord, Your mercy is so great,
That You look beyond our weakness,
And find purest gold in miry clay,
Turning sinners into saints.

And I will always sing Your praise,
Here on earth and ever after;
For You’ve shown me heaven’s my true home,
When it’s all been said and done.
You’re my life when life is gone …

*An individual given over to tears … I am not,
but this song is different.
It’s pure strain of simplicity is worth listening to on YouTube.
“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”
1 John 2:16-17
