Time is a gift of love and grace,
Without time there'd be no time to change,
Time to be tried, humbled and broken,
Time to hear the word of love spoken.
I see the mission up ahead of me and I tremble as one shaken; but if I have the eyes of faith, the eyes to see, I will leave the outcome in the hands of the one who called me,
And over and over I must learn and relearn that whether I decrease or whether I increase is not my concern. (not my concern, no)
Deliver me from strategy, from endless clever thinking,
Set my sights upon the shore, keep this boat from sinking down,
Let me taste of a fresh wind of reason and stir the gift within, for I am not a boat left to drift at sea,
I remain in you and you remain in me,
There is no great distance between you and I.
The moment I found out who you were, I found out who I was,
The silence covered me and the tears began to fall,
I could see...I could see what a great and grand...great and grand act of affection it's all been, (time that is, time that is, talk about time that is, time that is)
My history is written through the choices I make,
Let me sing just ten true words,
I'd rather sing just ten true words than a hundred words that in the end amount to nothing...absolutely nothing.
