I got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day
I had so much to accomplish
that I didn't have time to pray
Problems just thumbled about me
and heavier came each task.
Why doesn't God help me ? I wondered,
He answered, "You didn't ask".
I wanted to see joy and beauty
but the day toiled on, gray and bleak,
I wondered why God didn't show me,
He said, "But you didn't seek".
I tried to come into God's presence
I used all my keys at 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,
that I had to take time to pray.
