Only Took A Second - Poem by Barry Hughes

It only takes a second
And you’re whole worlds new

It only takes a second
And you’ve got a whole new view

It only took a second
For God to bring me you

The best things in my life
Only took a second

Jesus came into my heart
It only took a second

Praying on a bench
It only took a second

Becoming friends with you
It only took a second

You both changed my life
And it only took a second

I know I’ve made some bad choices in life
I know I’ve made some hard ones to

But I know if God told me
“You’ve only got a second left
What are you going to do? ”

I know if I only had a second left
There’s one thing I would do

If I only had a second left
Id make sure it was second spent with you

I know it’s only a second
But I thought you ought to know

That one second God just gave me
Made me the happiest guy I know
