Fast-Food World
by Steven P. Wickstrom

Sometimes I get on my knees and I start to pray
Can't understand why the answers don't come right away
I'm always getting myself into some kind of problem
And I always expect the Lord to solve them
Because in this world I simply have no time
Don't you see, it's all because I'm

Living in a fast-food world
Where I don't even have to wait
"Get it now" reads the banner we've unfurled
I'm moving so fast I cannot see straight


The Lord is slow to anger and slow to wrath
But I can't wait while I run down the path
Patience is a virtue I'd rather not suffer
I want everything right now, if not any quicker
I don't want to wait for what is mine
Don't you see, it's all because I'm

Living in a fast-food world
Where I don't even have to wait
"Get it now" reads the banner we've unfurled
I'm moving so fast I cannot see straight


The saints of old used to fast and pray
I'd do that to, if I'd get results today
The Bible says to wait upon the Lord
How long will it take to get my reward
The fruit of the Spirit is so sublime
Don't you see, it's all because I'm

Living in a fast-food world
Where I don't even have to wait
"Get it now" reads the banner we've unfurled
I'm moving so fast I cannot see straight


Lord save me from this apostasy into which I've come
Show me your path and help me to escape from

Living in a fast-food world
Lord teach me patience to learn to wait
"Love" is the banner that should be unfurled
Let's walk down the path which is narrow and straight
