I Knelt To Pray But Not For Long
Ms. Jaclyn Joyce Domingo
(4th Year Guidance Counselor)
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,
jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease.....
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,
was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die.
I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
in his hands God! held a book;
It was the book of life.
God looked into his book and said
name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down...
But never found the time"
