No Time

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 can not find.
I once was going to write it down
But never found the time."
