Nothing Else Matters

by Dee Lorraine

You can write great music
You can sing love songs
You can play piano
All day or all night long

You can strum on your guitar
You can beat a big bass drum
You can clash the cymbals loud
Or just sit and softly hum

But is your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life?
Do you know you are one of Jesus’ own?
If the answer’s not “Yes”
If you have to second-guess
Nothing else matters
Nothing else matters

You can write a thrilling novel
You can author your memoir
You can ghostwrite books for others
So no one knows just who you are

You can pen poetic verses
And majestic lines of prose
Get your byline in newspapers
Or script big hit TV shows

But is your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life?
Do you know you are one of Jesus' own?
If the answer’s not “Yes”
If you have to second-guess
Nothing else matters
Nothing else matters

Charles Studd wrote,
“Only what’s done for Christ will last.”
It’s just as true now as in ages past.
Famous or unknown, rich or poor
The only way to Heaven
Is Jesus Christ: the open Door.

Is your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life?
Do you know you are one of Jesus’ own?
If the answer’s not “Yes”
If you have to second-guess
Nothing else matters
Nothing else matters.

One thought on “Nothing Else Matters

  1. “Only one life, ’twill soon be past
    Only what’s done for Christ will last.”

    Let the church say amen.
