EXTRA TIME

EXTRA TIME

Oh! How I wonder what a person would say,
Should the Lord decide to take that person away.
Would he or she say “I really don’t want to go I bet,
There is someone else you can get?”

I have so much money I haven’t spent.
No matter where I go I’m not content.
What’s that Lord? Have I helped anyone?
Lord no one asked, no one under the sun.

Lord if you will grant me some extra time,
I’ll share my love and give away every dime.
Dear Lord if you will listen to my prayer
I’ll show you how much I really do care.

With your help Lord, I’ll be able to repair,
All the heartache and misery, I caused others to bear.
Lord if you grant me some extra time
I will share your love along with mine.

Dear Lord, if you don’t grant me some extra time,
To share our love and give away every dime,
Then grant me forgiveness for all the wrong I have done.
Yes Lord, forgiveness from you and Jesus your Son.

By receiving your forgiveness before I die,
I know we will meet somewhere above the sky.
I’ll ask St. Peter to let me pass through the gate,
As I’ve an appointment with you and I can’t be late.

I will meet with you Lord and try to explain
How your forgiveness helped to ease my pain.
I pray that you will accept my deepest apology,
I pray I will live with you for eternity.
