David Olusegun Agbaje
If you are busy being kind,
You won't have time to find
That the man next to you
Has been unfair to you.
If you are busy being glad,
And bringing smiles to the sad,
You may even be in chains
You will not feel the pain.
If you are busy shooting prayers
Of love and health and wealth to others,
You will enjoy in this world and beyond even,
Manifold blessings pouring from heaven.
