What's In Time? - Poem by Richard Merrell

If sixty seconds make a minute
And sixty minutes an hour
What's in time for you to do?
But to tell of God's great power.

Twenty four hours are in a day
Seven days in a week
What's in time for you to do?
But to preach Christ to the meek.

Four weeks make up a month
And thirteen months a year
What's in time for you to do?
But teach ' God's love casts out fear.'

For what is in time, this present age?
But one thing that a Christian must do;
'tis to tell of the Saviour's wondrous love
Calvary's time means redemption's time too.'
