1 Life is but a story written down
On the tablets of memory,
Each one writing for himself alone,
Each a record for eternity.
Ev’ry day we live we’re writing, writing!
Shall the record show the blight of sin?
Keep its pages clear!
Bring His kingdom near!
Ask Jesus the way, and walk therein.
2 Each new day presents a page of white,
Hour by hour an opportunity;
Secret sin and loving service true,
All are written down unerringly. [Refrain]
3 Never-ending shall the record be,
And the writing we can ne’er efface;
Blessed shall he be when life is o’er
Who each day has written, “Saved by grace!” [Refrain]Source: Progressive Sunday School Songs #161
