First-Place Song

1. Before our Father sent us down to earth,

He told us all of His eternal plan

For us each to learn of our individual worth

And return to live with Him again.

But we knew that this life would not be easy.

Still we were eager for our chance to come

And experience the things that this new life would bring,

Tho’ it meant we’d have to leave our heav’nly home.

But this life is only just a moment;

Just the blink of an eye and then it’s through.

Chorus

2. Here in this world, far from our heav’nly home

So many people choose to do what’s wrong.

Tho’ I try to stay on the straight and narrow way,

It is hard to stand up and be strong.

But the Savior is always there to help us

And I must learn to listen and obey.

I’m deciding where I’ll be thru all eternity

By the choices I’m making ev’ry day.

For this life is only just a moment;

Just the blink of an eye and then it’s through.

Chorus

Chorus

It’s a time for us to find out exactly who we are,

A chance to discover what is true.

And when the things of this world begin to tempt me

And I struggle to decide my destiny,

I must remember this life is just a moment,

Just a moment in eternity.
