The Poem - Will I make time??

I knelt to pray but not for long
I had too much to do 
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due 
Do I knelt and said a hurried prayer
and jumped off my knees
My Christian duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease
All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer
No time to speak of Christ to friends
They'd laugh at me I fear
No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die
I went before the Lord
I came, I stood with downcast eyes
In His hands, God held a book
It was the book of life
God looked into his book and said
"Your name I cannot find.
I once was going to write it down...
But never found the time."
