Time Flies - Lyrics

Time flies and life passes
Already I seem to hear
the last trumpet singing
Oh, come out of the grave
You've scattered ashes and bones
Oh, rise again, you souls

Today we are born
and tomorrow we die
Time flies; life passes
Today we appear
and tomorrow we're gone
Time flies; life passes
Today we are born
and tomorrow we die
Time flies; life passes
Today we appear
and tomorrow we're gone
Time flies; life passes

Oh, rise and tell us, truly
If we should have served
This world or the king in heaven
To open our eyes to the truth
That life is but a breath of wind
that passes in a moment

This mortal life
has wings to fly so fast
and passes at such speed
The wind is thunderbolts

The day is swiftly kidnapped
and likewise, the night
Winter and summer fade
? to eternity
Time which will not endure
devours us and measures our span

All life is given from heaven
And then is whisked away
