How Many?

How many songs were written
With lyrics meant for the Lord?
How many writers wrote them
Striking another chord?
How many songs have been sung
That were meant for the King of Kings?
How many writers’ ears were deaf
Because their minds were on worldly things?
How many times has God spoken,
And we ignored what He had to say?
How many blessings have passed us by
As we walked blindly through our day?
Have we missed His desire completely
While we pressed through the worries of life?
Have we left Him out of our planning
As we dealt with everyday strife?
Perhaps He should do all the planning;
We’d avoid all the fear and the stress.
Perhaps we should reach for His garment,
And avoid getting lost in the press.
