High Time for Heaven's Task

"The king's servants said unto the king, Behold, thy servants are ready to do whatsoever my lord the king shall appoint" (2 Samuel 15:15).  "God looked down from heaven… to see if there were any that did understand" (Psalm 53:2).  "The ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD" (Proverbs 5:21).  "Now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed… Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light" (Romans 13:11,12). 

Come, servants of our King so great,
And offer Him your service now. 
Why should we yet procrastinate
Till every knee to Him shall bow?

Our God looks down from heaven's throne
To see those who will understand
That it is time to make Him known,
For His return is now at hand.

The Lord is pondering our ways;
Our attitudes cannot be masked. 
He's not impressed with empty praise
From those refusing to be tasked. 

O Lord, with heaven's task so clear,  
We see it's high time to awake,
Lest You should find us slothful here
And we lament our great mistake!
