446. If I had time enough

Lord, I tell You,
If I had time enough
I would definitely
Help You in Your manifestation.

Lord, I tell you,
If I had time enough
I would unmistakably prove to be
Your most perfect instrument.

Alas, time is my worst enemy.
How hard I try to make friends with time
So that I can use her
At my sweet will.

Lord, just give me the time.
A little more, I tell You,
And I shall love You,
Please You and fulfil You,
Even in Your own way.
Is it not an astonishing bargain?
