    I knelt to pray but not to long i had to 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
    My Christian duty was now done
    my soul could rest at ease
    All day long I had no time
    to spread a word of cheer
    No time to speak of Christ to friends
    They-d laugh at me I fear
    No time No time to much to do
    That was my constant cry
    No time to give to souls in need
    But at last a time to die
    I went before the Lord, I came with
    downcast eyes
    For in his hand he 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.
