THE DIFFERENCEI got up early one morning and rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish that I didn’t take time to pray.
Problems just tumbling about me, and heavier came each task;
“Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered. He answered: “You didn’t ask.”
I wanted to see joy and beauty – but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
I wondered why God didn’t show me, He said: “But you didn’t seek.”
I tried to come into God’s presence, I used all my keys at the lock
God gently and lovingly chided: “My child, you didn’t knock.”
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.
