Have you neglected what is right?
Been lax and aimless in the fight?
Too dull to care and loathe to pray?
There is an answer:
Have you lacked discipline of mind?
Have you forgotten to be kind?
Has Love—God’s Love—not marked your way?
The path to change is…
Are you too slow to leave your bed?
Has Father’s Word been left unread?
Would those who know you best not say
they see Christ in you?
Have holy tasks been left undone?
Are souls still lost that should be won?
It’s time to enter in the fray!
No more excuses.
For even now the fool will say,
“Delay! Delay! Delay! Delay!
The work can wait. There’s time for play.
We’ll start tomorrow…not today.”
Do not waste time with “should have been.”
With faithless thoughts add sin on sin.
Regret helps no one. Action may!
Live in the present.
Your life is brief, the days fly past;
Each one more precious than the last.
Grab hold of where vast fortunes lay!
With Christ in Heaven!
