No time...

I knelt to pray but not for long I had too much to do.
Must hurry up and get to work to for bills would soon be due.

And so I said a hurried prayer
jumped up from on my knees.
No time to speak a word of cheer No time for those in need.

No time No time to meditate that was my constant cry.
No time No time minutes are few At last twas time to die.

And when before the Lord I came I stood with downcast eyes -
within his hands he held a book it was the book of life.

And when he looked into his book he said your name I cannot find.
I once was going to write it down but never found the time.
