THE TIME IS NOW

Break the shackles of the old,
crack the bondage of the past;
So much gets in the way
because of yesterday.

Destiny holds the future
which cannot promise today –
we are in the here and now
bring on the new; clap and bow.

We are in the here and the now
the time that matters is this hour
the time to taste
the glory of grace
to see his face
the depths of his waste
the compassion in every gaze.

Break the shackles of the old,
crack the bondage of the past;
So much gets in the way
because of yesterday.

So much is overlooked in the present;
We need only turn to see,
and when we do, we can only ask:
Is there no end to you and me?
