Take Time To Live.

When in life we make our journey,
The world around us beckons,
Our home, our friends, our tasks so many,
Each day our soul awakens.

When visions of tomorrow appear,
Our hopes and dreams conceive,
To make us strive through toil and tear,
We take time to achieve.

Sometimes our dreams may seem too high,
Our hopes seem harboured in vain.
Yet in our hearts we yearn to fly,
We take time to attain.

Then, through it all, we come to see,
That life has more to give,
If we would turn, O God, to Thee,
Then we'll take time to live.
