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 Christ to friends,
  • They'd laugh at me I'd 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, 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 cannot find.
  • I once was going to write it down...
  • But never found the time"
