from the time you were born to the present God was watching you
each new day brings about different circumstances in this life
everyday there's a brand new baby born every night got the covers to keep you warm
In the city people are getting busy going to & fro
life is best lived when your making other plans you understand
God holds the keys to what's true over your life amidst the given strife
Some folks live as gangsters in their souped up Camry such a commodity
Others live in the moment alone in their thoughts to learn the way
Still some perhaps the few carry on with a song in their heart to impart
The few seek the narrow way by which they pray everyday

Life is what y6ou make of it so don't try to fake it must be committed to it
Early when you rise say thanks to the good Lord up above thank him for his precious love
share with others who need help give them hope by which to cope
there are lives that need to be touched in a 21st century world in quite a rush
be happy that you are alive loose behind your foolish pride,
Be careful to entertain strangers cause unawares some have encountered angels in disguise
stop spreading lies draw near to God and he'll draw near to you
