I Donít Count It


I don't count it time that's wasted
When I teach the pat-a-cake,
Nor the time we point the stars out
'Til they know the paths they take.

I don't count it time that's wasted
When we sing the baby songs
And they can say the name of Jesus,
And do the sing-a-longs.

I can't see a better value than
The tiny folded hands,
When they learn to say the bedtime prayer
And begin to understand.

When I hear them sing, "Be careful,
Little eyes - what you see,"
I can see the wisdom, plainly;
Teaching toddlers songs like these.

You can't even waste a minute
When you put foundations down.
It is never ever wasted.
It will never bring a frown.

For, the precepts (taught, so young)
Still last a whole life through.
Someday, they may remember that
They learned this love from you!
