Quiet time
Joe Tritz

It's been a long hard day at work
The kids are tired
And the house is still a mess
Have some bills piled up
And some magazines
And some papers that I still haven't read
I seem so far behind Need to schedule both cars for an oil change
And I'm almost out of gas
Got a priority list that's three pages long
And it keeps on growing
At a rate that's much too fast
Trying not to lose my mind

And all I want
Is a little quiet time
With You
So I can clear my head
All I need
Is a little quiet time
With You
So I can draw upon Your strength
And I can make it through the day

The best time spent is time with You
So You can help me work things through
And I can cope with all that life's about
Just a little while
And I begin to smile
I know You feel my trials
And remove my doubts

So I get back to my life
And I understand
The circumstances haven't changed
But a burden's been removed
And I've given it to You
And the feeling's not the same
I feel like I'm renewed - again

And all I did
Was have some quiet time
With You
So I can could clear my head
All I needed
Was some quiet time
With You
So I could draw upon Your strength
And I could make it through the day
