No Time, No Time….
I knelt to pray, but not for long.
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work,
For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done.
My soul could rest at ease….
All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer.
No time to speak of God to friends.
They’d laugh at me I fear.
No time! No time! TOO MUCH TO DO!
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But…. at last the time to die.
I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood, with downcast eyes.
For, in His hands God held a book,
It was the book of life.
God looked into His book and said:
“Your name I could not find.
I was going to write it down….
But, I never found the time.”
