    But You Didn't

    Remember the time you lent me your car,
    And I dented it?
    I thought you'd kill me,
    But you didn't

    Remember the time I forgot to tell you the dance was formal,
    And you came in jeans?
    I thought you'd hate me
    But you didn't

    Remember the time I flirted with other guys
    Just to make you jealous and you were?
    I thought you'd dump me
    But you didn't

    There were so many things you did to put up with me,
    To keep me happy, to love me.
    There were so many things I wanted to tell you
    When you returned from Vietnam
    But you didn't"

    There is a time in our lives,
    We shed our tears,
    We confront our fears,
    And realize life is so dear.

    There is a time in our lives,
    We know what is right,
    We put up a fight,
    To make God our guiding light.

    There is a time in our lives,
    We learn to pray,
    Before we lay,
    At the end of every day,

    There is a time in our lives,
    We want to be saved,
    By God's glory we are amazed,
    So Heaven we crave.

    There is a time in our lives,
    We realize what to do,
    For those with out a clue,
    And help them through.

    There is a time in our lives,
    We can get stuck,
    And down on our luck,
    But what helps me is just to look up.

    On the street I saw a small girl
    Cold and shivering in a thin dress,
    With little hope of a decent meal.

    I became angry and said to God:
    "Why don't you do something about it?"
    For a while God said nothing.
    That night he replied, quite suddenly:

    "I certainly did something about it.
    I made you."

One for helping yourself, and the other for helping others."

    God, please tell me why-
    Why do the good men die?
    Why do petals drop from rose bushes?
    Why do people not get their wishes?
    Why do the innocent suffer the most?
    Why, when the rich men sit and boast?
    God, please tell me why-
    Why do the good men die?
    Why do old friends go away?
    Why do people go astray?
    Why do lover's flames go out?
    Why do people need to shout?
    Why do people get let down?
    Why do they make each other frown?
    God, please tell me why-
    Why do the good men die?;
