Counting for Him Poem

This poem really blessed me when I first read it. I thought it might bless you too. Our lives count in Christ Jesus!

By: A.W.S

The life that counts must toil and fight,
Must hate the wrong and love the right,
Must stand for truth, by day and night,
This is the life that counts.

The life that counts must hopeful be;
The darkest night make melody;
Must wait until the dawn on bended knee-
This is the life that counts.

The life that counts must aim to rise
Above the earth to sunlit skies;
Must fix its gaze on Paradise-
This is the life that counts.

The life that counts must helpful be;
The cares and needs of others see;
Must seek the slaves of sin to free-
This is the life that counts.

The life that counts is linked in God;
And turns not from the cross, the rod;
But walks with joy where Jesus trod-
This is the life that counts.
