What's Most Important?

The last day of the old year,
With the New Year dawning,
“Where did the time go?”
We wonder, groaning!

Looking back on time,
How could we have missed
All the important jobs
We placed on our list?

So little accomplished,
With so much to have done,
We crowded the important
In with the fun.

Time has a way of getting lost,
As we go about our way,
Forgetting that only
So much time is packed in a day.

Lest we should forget
God’s given promise,
That His living Son
Is truly among us,

Redeem the time
For His coming is nigh,
His Word is truth,
And He does not lie.
