Put God First
Don’t wait until the house is all kept,
The beds are made, the floors are swept:
Put PRAYER first.
Don’t wait until the newspaper is read,
Your books are balanced, and you are in bed:
Put the BIBLE first.
Don’t wait until the cupboards are bare,
There’s nothing to depend on but God and prayer:
Put FASTING first.
Don’t wait until the last bill is paid,
The account is large; vacation is made:
Put the CHURCH first.
Don’t wait until you’ve nothing to do,
Until all is finished-for we never get through:
Put GOD first.
