Stop... read... and pray!

I knelt to pray but not for long,I had too much to do.I had to hurry and get to workFor bills would soon be due.So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,And jumped up off my knees.My Christian duty was now doneMy soul could rest at ease.....All day long I had no timeTo spread a word of cheerNo time to speak of Christ to friends,They'd laugh a at me I'd fear.No time, no time, too much to do,That was my constant cry,No time to give to souls in needBut at last the time, the time to dieI went before the Lord,I came, I stood with downcast eyes.For in his hands God! Held a book;It was the book of life.God looked into his book and said"Your name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down...
But never found the time"
