08. Our Time Is Now [feat. Carole King]

How Mercy Looks From Here
by Amy Grant



 

January, February, March
The days are marching forward
April, May, June, and July
They fly like a hummingbird
August, September, October
The year is almost over
November, December arrive
Another year, come and gone
TIME IS ILLUSION
TIME IS A CURSE
TIME IS ALL THESE THINGS AND WORSE
BUT OUR TIME IS NOW, OHHHHH
YES, OUR TIME IS NOW, OHHHHH
LET US SING BEFORE OUR TIME RUNS OUT
The sound of your laughter
Your smile
These things are never changing
But Monday I blink and it’s Friday
I wish we could slow it down
Saturday, Sunday, now Monday
Another week starting over
Seconds to minutes to hours
Here’s what I’ve found
TIME IS ILLUSION
TIME IS A CURSE
TIME IS ALL THESE THINGS AND WORSE
BUT OUR TIME IS NOW, OHHHHH
YES, OUR TIME IS NOW, OHHHHH
LET US SING BEFORE OUR TIME RUNS OUT
I want to sing before my time runs out

Written by Jon Foreman, Amy Grant, and Marshall Altman

Behind the Song:
"One of the voices in the base line preceding the chorus belongs to my father (not an easy feat at this point in his life). The “ohhhhh’s” were sung by my children, as a gift for my 52nd birthday. Thank you Matt, Millie, Sarah, Jenny, and Corrina (the order in which you came into my life)." - Amy Grant
