I Chose The Bed Instead

          Get up get up the Spirit said

          Don't just lie in bed

          Let God prepare you for the day

          For whatever lies ahead

          But the covers felt so nice and warm

          All nestled round my head

          And instead of choosing to come to God

          I chose the bed instead

          It didn't take me long to see

          I had made a foolish choice

          When I did arise the first thing I heard

          Was Mr. Regretful's voice

          I overheard Mr. Doubtful

          Speaking to Mr. Gloom

          They plan to visit you today

          The time will be at noon

          They are bringing their friend

          Ungrateful, Mr. Forgetful too

          To do their best to make you forget

          How good God is to you

          I knew I was in trouble

          How could I face the day?

          Right then and there I took the time

          To get on my knees and pray

          My child a voice gently whispered

          Let all the worry cease

          Mr. Hopeful, Mr. Thankful, and Mr. Joy

          At noon will bring my peace
