Know It All

While robins sing, alarm clocks ring -

and our whole day is planned.

Birds perch steady. We get ready.

We settle in quicksand.

The leopard lurks while we're at work.

It seeks its fragile prey.

Important though, our Savior know -

yet we still fail to pray.

Forgetting cross, we please our boss,

while truth is right at hand.

God's loving face and lasting grace -

yet we don't understand.

Do you know what? Our ears are shut,

when we hear Jesus call.

A life of ease - and then Hades.

We think we know it all.
