"TAKE TIME"

Verse 1
I Woke up this mornin'
With a yoke around my neck.
The burdens I was carryin'
Just loomed about my head …

'Cause I wasn't takin' time
In the Temple today,
To listen to God
And to stop and pray.
Too busy with my work
I had to do today.
I was carryin' my burdens
Like a heavy load of hay.
Chorus
Oh, stop and hear from the Lord.
Oh, take the time with the Lord.
He can work things out!

Verse 2
So I started off hurryin'
Like a chicken with no head.
I was losin' my direction
'Cause my connection with Him was dead.

Like a fighter pilot
Flyin' a busted plane,
Radar gettin' jammed
Again and again,
Navigational difficulties,
Compass won't turn,
Losin' my altitude-
I'm gonna crash and burn!
Repeat Chorus
Lead break:
Verse 3
So I quit what I was doin'
And I heard from Him instead.
Felt like weights were being lifted
When I stuck praises in my head.

Now I know I gotta take
Some time away,
To listen to God
And to stop and pray.
Use the new weapons
That He's given today;
Listen to His voice,
Get directions for today.
Repeat Chorus
