"GOD TAKES HIS TIME"

Chorus:
God takes His time to make a tree,
A baby so tiny or a bumble bee.
He grows them slow so we can see
And know the way we ought to be.

The farmer can't plant the seeds
And say, "Come on and hurry up
And grow in one day!"
He has to wait for the rain and sun
To help the plants grow one by one.

[Repeat chorus]

We can't expect babies to get up and walk;
It takes time to teach them to read and to talk.
Show lots of patience in all that you do,
Remember you once were a baby, too.

[Repeat chorus]

So don't be discouraged
When something goes slow,
Though it is hard to wait, I know.
Remember the plants
And the baby so small.
Take time to go slow,
You'll grow big and tall.

[Repeat chorus twice]

And know the way we ought to be.
God takes His time with you and me.
