I laughed a quiet little laugh;
O’ Lord, that’s not like me;
For life is short and life is full,
And as fast as life can be.
I don’t remember how it came;
I quite forgot the trigger;
But, as will happen with these things,
That small thing just got bigger.
And, then I thought how short life is,
Yet full and quick for me;
And thought how full and quick must be
Your long life is for Thee.
