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 answered, "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.
