Song Description

A dying old man prays to the Lord asking for more time on earth before he dies. The old man wants to set things right before his exit by correcting some mistakes and maybe telling more people that he loves them. The truth is that the Lord thinks the old man has shown strength in his life and welcomes the faithful survant home to heaven.

Story Behind the Song

An old man trying to negoiate through prayer, his final days on earth before the Lord takes him.


Words and music by Gary Lee Ireland (12/11/14)

Verse 1:
The old man prayed Lord I'd like to know
Just wondering if it's my time to go
But could I stay a little while
Maybe a day or maybe just an hour

Chorus 1:
You see I don't think that I've done enough
I could use more time to finish up
To say I love you to right a wrong
Just a little more time so you can take me home

Verse 2:
Heaven seems so far away, yes I'm scared
That's why I pray
Through all these years I've had some doubts
So a little more time might help me work things out

Chorus 1:

A little more time is what I pray
What would it hurt to give me one more day
A little more time is all I need
To make amends before I leave
Oh Lord, a little more time

Verse 3:
The Lord smiled and said son be not afraid
I'll take you home and keep the promise that I made
But your journey is through and your time is here
Now Heaven awaits so dry those tears

Chorus 2:

You see I think that you've done quite enough
And you don't need time to finish up
I've looked at all the strength you've shown
Faithful servant, welcome home
Faithful servant, welcome home
