Lyrics

Glorious Movement of Time

Written By: Clinton R. LeFort

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD
ON-LY BY THE FATHER HEARD
AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD
WHEN ALL CREATION WAS NOT

HE CLOTHED HIMSELF IN MYSTERY
THAT WE COULD SHARE IN HIS DIVINITY

WITHOUT YOU WE HAD NO BEGINNING
WITHOUT YOU WE WERE NEVER FREED FROM SINNING
WITHOUT YOU THERE WAS NO HUMANKIND
WITH YOU THE GLORIOUS MOVEMENT OF TIME


AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH
FROM THE FATHER'S BOSOM HE LEAPT
IN MARY'S WOMB HE DESCENDED
IN SILENT HUMILITY SHE CONSENTED

HE LIVED AMONG US FOR ALL WHO BELIEVED
OF HIS GLORY WE HAVE ALL RECEIVED

THRU THE AGES WE ALL RUN
FOLLOWING THE ETERNAL SON
THE ALPHA AND OMEGA OF FAITH
THE RESTORER AND PERFECTOR OF ALL GRACE

WITHOUT YOU WE HAD NO BEGINNING
WITHOUT YOU WE WERE NEVER FREED FROM SINNING
WITHOUT YOU THERE WAS NO HUMANKIND
WITH YOU - THE GLORIOUS MOVEMENT OF TIME
