Slow Me Down

When I wake up in the morning
And already I'm behind
When I set aside my praying
'cause I'm worried about time
When the coffee burns my lips
I'm too rushed to let it cool
When my mind is just too scattered
To read my list of things to do

Slow me down
Too many irons in the fire
I'm always pushin' to the wire
'Til there's nothing left of me
Slow me down
Separate wheat from chaff in me
Jesus that's what I really need
Slow me down

When my kids wake in the morning
And I'm miles on the road
When they hear me say sweet dreams
From some distant telephone
When my wife seems more like someone
I might say I used to know
When I tell a friend I'll call you
But we both know that I won't


(Bridge) When the work I want to see as an opportunity
Feels just like an expectation placed on me
When I'm doing all these things but with less than half of me
Jesus slow me down before I burn this candle out
