Worry or Pray?

What’s the good of worry? What can worry do?
It never keeps a trouble from overtaking you.
It gives you indigestion, and sleepless hours at night.
It fills your every day with gloom, however fair or bright.
It puts a frown upon your face, and sharpness in your tone;
Makes you unfit to live with others and unfit to live alone.
What’s the good of worry? What can worry do?
It never keeps your troubles from overtaking you.
Pray? Why pray? What good can praying do?
Praying really changes things, arranges life anew.
It’s good for your digestion, gives peaceful sleep at night,
And fills the darkest day with rays of glowing light.
It puts a smile upon your face, a love-note in your tone;
It makes you fit to live with others, and fit to live alone.
What’s the good of praying? What can praying do?
It moves the God of heaven to live and work in you.
