BBC Radio Leicester Thought for the Day

© John Denney 23 March 2005


The clock is running

Tick tock, tick tock.

The futureís coming

Tick tock, tick tock.

In Spring the clocks go forward

In Fall the clocks go back.

Making lifeís decisions

You feel youíre on the rack.


Do this, or do that

How can I decide?

Is this life for living,

Or_am I just here for the ride?

Worry, thinking, heartache:

My head begins to throb;

Is the value of my life

Just related to my job?



Will she, wonít she

Decide to marry me?

Even though Iím ready

To go down on bended knee.

Maybe sheíll reject me:

Whatíll I do next?

Maybe she will change her mind Ė

The privilege of her sex.


In the throes of all my worries

In the midst of all my fears

Thereís a still small voice that calms me

By my side through all my years.

My father-Godís beside me

And He cares and comforts me

So I live my life by moments

Itís in now that I can be.



The years that God has given me

Grow shorter by the day

Iím nearer heaven than I was

It could be no other way.

And one day when I stand there

Iíll see God start to smile

Heíll say Youíre my beloved child:

Your life has been worth while.


So amid lifeís bustle

Thank God that Heís your rock

And never worry at that sound

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock.
