TIME FLIES AWAY by Gerry O'Connell

When I was young my old grandfather
Would put his pocket watch to my ear
Tick-tock, tick-tock the ticking clock would sing out
Each minute seemed just like a year
I’d watch those hands closely to see if I could trace
Their steady movement round the face

Seconds, minutes, hours, days
Weeks, and months, and years...
Time Flies Away.....

Times like money in our pocket
One life is all that we possess
Though we may save some time
and have the best of times
Each day we spend
Is one day less
This life will soon be gone
And when this life is done
We will stand before his face

Seconds minutes hours days
Weeks and months and years
Time flies away, hey
Time flies away, hey

Well we woke up the other morning
And we were busy all day through
We worked so hard and got so weary
Yet looking back what did we do
Like Martha so busy so worried
We forget we should always
Seek your face

Time is passing, time is short
Time is precious and time
Time must be bought
You know my Lord he never hurried
He never tried to rush away
He made the time to talk to people
Listened to what they had to say
Old ladies young babies rich rulers
Poor outcasts they all met him
Face to face

SECONDS MINUTES…. Etc Time flies away
We must beware the evil one the time is short
the darkness comes
and time flies away and time flies away
