I Have 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

No time to give to souls in need
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 would laugh at me I had fear
No time, no time, too much to do
That was my constant cry
My duty was now done
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"
