Jesus to my Rescue    March 19, 2010    Comments Off on NO TIME

I knelt to pray but not for long

I had too much to do.

Must hurry off and get to work

For bills would soon be due.

And as I said a hurried prayer

Jumped up from off my knee.

My Christian duty now was done

My soul could be at ease.

All through the day I had no time

To speak a word of Cheer.

No time to speak of Christ to friend

They’d laugh at me I feared.

No time – No time too much to do

That was my constant cry.

No time to give to those in need

At last it was time to die.

And when before the Lord I came

I stood with down cast eyes.

Within His hand He held a book

It was the BOOK OF LIFE.

He looked in the book and said

“Your name I can not find.

I once was going to write it down

But never found the time.”
