So little time to say the things
You’d really like to say –
Before you even find the words,
The time just slips away.
So little time to do the things
You feel that you must do.
So treasure, like the purest gold,
The time God’s given you.
So little time to dream your dreams,
For youth has passed its prime,
And all too soon you realize
That there’s … so little time.
So little time to reach the height
To which you’re bound to climb,
For swiftly pass the waning years,
And there’s … so little time.
So little time to pass regrets,
And less, to make amends,
Yet God can heal the deepest wounds
In chosen, cherished friends.
So little time to share God’s love
And beauty here on earth,
And know, before His endless time,
Their meaning and true worth.
Oh, yes, there is so little time
To seek the hidden door
That opens up to heaven’s time,
Where time’s forevermore.
