Every morning a choice you must make
Should you make time for Bible and prayer;
You may think nothing much is at stake,
God prob'bly wouldn't even meet you there.
Extra sleep you could surely use.
Or time to get some housework done;
Or just maybe you should choose,
To laugh, play, and have some fun.
But you see not the Lord standing near,
Longing to meet you each day;
You do not see that quivering tear
As away from your Saviour you stay.
You'll miss what God has for you
By not taking time for the Lord;
Trials you may go through
To get you back into His Word.
But if you will take time for God,
He will surely meet with you;
Then no matter what path you may trod,
He will walk with you, too.
