I got up early one morning
            and rushed right into the day,
I had so much to accomplish
            that I didn’t have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me
            and heavier came each task;
“Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered
            He said, “But 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.
