It’s About Time

It's About Time There is only one answer to this dilemma today, and it is in my text: "It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law."

His little arms crept round my neck, And then I heard him say Four simple words I can't forget, Four words that made me pay.   They turned a mirror on my soul On secrets no one knew; They startled me; I hear them yet: Said he, "I'll be like You!" --- Author Unknown
