Go there, come here, do this, don’t delay!
Up the ladder of success I climb,
My spiritual life in disarray.
I hear a voice whisper. . .
Lots of places to go, folks to see,
Life is so busy the days go fast.
There’s not enough time for even me,
Before I know it the days are past.
Again I hear a voice. . .
Where your treasure is so is your heart
Lord, I truly meant to talk with You,
But I had to work, my children feed.
And an old friend called out of the blue,
She was feeling sad and so in need.
The voice said. . .
Your life a vapor will soon depart
I lost my health, my friends, and career,
It seemed that life had passed me by.
But my Lord was close so very near,
He said, ‘Ev’ry need I will supply.’
I read in His Word. . .
‘Gain the entire world lose your soul.
The grass withers the flower it fades.’
Our Sovereign God is in full control,
He alone numbers all of our days.
He says, ‘Be Still and Know I Am God.’
Make time listen to the still small voice,
Who speaks of life in the Lamb of God
‘Come child rest in me, it is your choice.’
