A Little More Time To Love
by Steven Curtis Chapman

Album: The Glorious Unfolding


There's a little boy looking at me in the mirror
He's asking where the time has gone
Was it here just long enough to draw these lines on my face?
Well I'm not sure I'm much wiser
But some things are clearer
And it's getting clear that I'm not here for long
So what am I to do with my few minutes here in this place?
And we hear the world sigh with its aches and its pains
We see the grass wither and watch flowers fade

But oh, there's a day that is coming
When everything will be new
And oh, God will dry every tear
And everything sad will be made untrue
And oh, it's gonna be a celebration
All of creation longs for
And while we're waiting for that day to come
We've got a little more time to love

There are little ones hungry for love of a family
So many hungry for bread
On the left and the right surrounded by the last and the least
And just down the street and just across the table
Hungry hearts are waiting to be fed
'Cause deep in our soul we're all longing to be at The Feast
But until we sit down where there's more than enough
Let us give as we've been given and love as we've been loved

There's a day that is coming
When all the last will be first
Every orphan will be home
And all will be filled who hunger and thirst
It's gonna be a celebration
All of creation longs for
And while we're waiting for that day to come
We've got a little more time

To do justly and love mercy
And show the love we've been shown
For we can only be the hands and feet of Jesus 'til
He leads us home
He will lead us home

There's a day that is coming
A day that never will end
There in the light of His glory
Everything broken will be whole again
And this will be the celebration
All of creation longs for
And while we're waiting for that day to come
We've got a little more time to love
Just a little more time to love
We've got just a little more time to love
Just a little more time to love
