Oh, child of God, can you not see?
That your life is out of balance, so completely;
Hours spent working, no time for God and family,
To make a pile of money that is spent so easily.
Do you not see that your anxiety,
Is caused by what you consider a priority?
Do you not know that no amount of worry,
Will add a single day to your life’s journey?
Oh, child of God, can you not hear?
The voice of the Saviour calling you near;
Come! Lay your burdens at the cross without fear,
For He gave His life to save you and your burdens to bear;
For his yoke is easy and His burden is light,
And He will free you from the dark fears of night.
Oh, come and make today a new life history!
One where the joys of friendship and family,
Overcome the preoccupation with earthly things.
Oh, come and make today a day of victory!
One where the joys of fellowship with Him,
Overcomes the worry of earthly living;
For He who knows each hair on your head,
Has purposed to provide you your daily bread;
For He who created everything in Heaven and Earth,
Knew you in your mother’s womb before she gave birth;
So believe, trust and obey Jesus, our heavenly King,
Who knows what you need before you ask Him.
