I got up early one morning

And rushed right into the day;

I had so much to accomplish

I didn’t have time to pray.

Troubles just tumbled about me

And heavier came each task.

Why doesn’t God help me, I wondered,

He answered, "You didn’t ask."

I tried to come into God’s presence,

I used all my keys at the lock,

God gently and lovingly chided

"Why child, you didn’t knock."

I wanted to see joy and beauty,

But the day toiled on gray and bleak,

I called on the Lord for the reason-

He said; "You didn’t seek."

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
