SO LITTLE TIME
Sister Miriam Barker
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 waring years,
And there's ... so little time.
So little time for past 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 open's up to heaven's time,
Where time's forevermore.
