I woke up early one morning and rushed right into the day.
I had so much to accomplish, I didn’t take time to pray.
Problems tumbled about me and heavier came each task.
Why doesn’t God help, I wondered? He said, “You didn’t ask.”
I wanted to see joy and gladness. But the day toiled grey and bleak.
Why doesn’t God help, I asked? He said, “But you didn’t seek.”
I wanted to come into God’s presence, I tried all my keys in the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided, “My child, you didn’t knock.”
I woke up early this morning, and paused before entering the day.
I had so much to accomplish, I had to take time to pray.
