I Knelt To Pray But Not For Long
I Had Too 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'd Fear

No Time, No Time Too Much To Do
That Was My Constant Cry

No Time To Give To Souls In Need
But At Last The Time To Die

I Went Before The Lord
I Came, I Stood With Downcast Eyes

For In His Hands God 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!

Sometimes I ask the question,
"My Lord, is this Your will?"
It's then I hear You answer me,
"My Precious Child...be still."

Sometimes I feel frustrated,
'Cause I think I know what's best.
It's then I hear You say to me,
"My Busy Child...just rest."

Sometimes I feel so lonely
And I think I'd like a mate.
Your still small voice gets
Oh so clear and says,
"My Child...please wait."

"I know the plans I have for you,
The wondrous things you'll see;
If you can just be patient, Child,
And put your trust in Me.

I've plans to draw you closer.
I've plans to help you grow.
There's much I do you cannot see
And much you do not know.

But know this, Child...
You are precious unto Me.
Before I formed you in the womb,
I planned your destiny.

I've something very special
I hope for you to learn.
The gifts I wish to give to you
Are gifts you cannot earn.

They come without a price tag,
But not without a cost;
At Calvary, I gave My son,
So You would not be lost.

Rest Child, and do not weary
Of doing what is good.
I promise I'll come back for you
Just like I said I would.

Your name is written on My palm,
I never could forget;
Therefore, do not be discouraged
When My answer is...NOT YET."
