No Time

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

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 cannot find

I once was going to write it down

But never found the time.
