Today at church, after graduates and their parents were honored, a song of admonition was sung as a reminder of our service to the Lord on this earth…

When It’s All Been Said and Done

written by Jim Cowan; sung by Robin Mark

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 have 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
Making sinners into saints

I will always sing your praise
Here on earth and in heaven 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.

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?

Lord I’ll live my life for You.

I close my eyes as the music plays, moving my lips and heart heavenward, I am reminded our lives are a wisp of vapor, a puff of smoke. My spirit begins to cry out to its Maker:

“Oh precious Lord Jesus, I want to live my life for You, I try to live my life for You…my spirit is more than willing, but my flesh, too often, is more than weak. As I pour myself out to You, again, Father, have mercy, and fill me up with more of You…”. 

Soli Deo Gloria

“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?”

Yes! This is one of my all time favorite songs. Such a simple, heart cry, but one we need to keep remembering to be aware of.
