Tick-Tock, Where Is The Clock? - Poem by Bishop William Gerald

Tick-tock, Where is the clock?
What time is it?
‘Tis time to channel help to foreign destitutes,
The homeless on the streets,
Help the fallen find their way,
To a brighter, Happier day.
Tick-tock, tick-tock— Tick-tock, Where is the clock?
Have you forgiven your foe, made peace with God
To escape His woe? Time’s of essence, you know.
Tick-tock, tick-tock— Tick, tock, Where is the clock?
A born again experience is life’s greatest need,
Not good fortune or an impressive deed,
‘Tis worth your time, every second counts.
Tick-tock, tick-tock— Tick-tock, Where is the clock?
It tells me something—it hurries me,
It slows me down—shows me its worth.
I need it! I need it!
Tick-tock, Where is the clock?
