Render Your Heart (It's Only What You've Done for the Lord) Lyrics
Chorus: Life is short and soon it will be past (Ps 89:47-48), it's only what you've done for the Lord that will last. Render (rend) Your heart and count up the cost (Joel 2:13). It's only what you've done for the Lord that will last (1 Pet 1:24-25)
One life to live and soon it will be past. It's only what you've done for Christ that will last (1 Cor 3:10-17). And when you stand up at the great white throne (Rev 20:11-15), you're all alone, (I say) upon your own. You've got one life to live, but one life to give (Heb 9:27), you cannot rewind your sin, nor wheel and come again (bring it back and start it again). What's done is done under the sun (Ecc 2:11), it may have been fun but the judgment come so (Heb 11:25). (Chorus). It's only what you've done for the Lord that will last. It's only what you've done for the Lord...
Man looks at the outward appearance but God judges the heart (1 Sam 16:7), it's only Jah that knows your every single thought (Ps 94:11). Render (rend) your heart and not your garment (Joel 2:13), yet you think that your days them will be sufficient (Ps 39:5). It's by grace not by works through which you have been saved (Eph 2:8-10), but judgment it is another story. And it really doesn't matter how righteous you behaved- what was your motive? Was it God's glory? (1 Cor 10:31). (Chorus). It's only what you've done for the Lord that will last. Life is short, oh so short... Oh my Lord (Job 7:7). (Chorus).
You could lead someone to Christ and that is certain "for true" but with the wrong heart it doesn't count for anything "for you". Man was not made to be put upon one stage, neither was he made to have his face upon the front page of a magazine or even a video, unto the Almighty is where the glory must go. I am just one beggar showing another where to get some bread (Jhn 6:35-40). (So) I'll try not to let the pride reach to my head (Prov 11:2). (Chorus). Life is short, oh so short. Life is short, ever so short (Ps 90:10). (Chorus).
