Taking Time

Lord, let me take time to think.
It is the source of power.

Let me take time to play.
It is the secret of perpetual youth.

Let me take time to read.
It is the fountain of wisdom.

Let me take time to pray.
It is the greatest power on Earth.

Lord, let me take time to love

and be loved.
It is a God-given privilege.

Let me take time to be friendly.
It is the road to happiness.

Let me take time to laugh.
It is the music of the soul.

Let me take time to give.
It is too short a day to be selfish.

Let me take time to work.
It is the price of success.

Let me take time to do good.
It is the key to heaven.
