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.”
