Tick tock…tick tock
Time keeps ticking on the clock
Hearts on earth thump to the beat
To and fro go busy feet
Off to work, the daily grind
Many distractions fill the mind
Pleasure, excitement, food and fun
Why! There’s enough for everyone
We hurry, scurry, we toil and build
Yet the emptiness within is never filled
We dig and search, we seek and look
We read and study many a book
We fall in love, our hearts entwined
Raise a family, wine and dine
Hold our grandchildren in our arms
Delighting in all of their little charms
Tick tock…tick tock, time surely flies away
Life’s so sweet, too short they say
We grow old too soon, sad but true
And years gone past we cannot renew
The great beyond has a way of beckoning
As we draw closer to the day of reckoning
Take stock now, reach for the sky!
No time for sorrow, do not cry
God is near and to Him let’s draw
He melts hearts - his love to thaw
He gives hope where once was none
He has the answers! Face the sun!
Feel the warmth and light He brings!
Pray and worship – hearts now sing!
Christ has triumphed, there is much in store!
Time with him is forevermore!
