“Time How Swift”

 

The final verse in a hymn by John Newton which appears in the “New Year” section of the Olney Hymns.

 

 

Thanks for mercies past receive,

   Pardon for our sins renew;

Teach us, henceforth, how to live

   With eternity in view:

Bless thy word to young and old,

   Fill us with a Saviour’s love;

And when life’s short tale is told,

   May we dwell with thee above.
