I Can Tell You the Time

Play episode

This song by Adger M. Pace is such a blessing to me that I can’t help but bookmark it here for myself and, hopefully, for many others to discover it.

“Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen”Heb 13:20-21

I remember the time (I remember the time)
When in darkness I wondered (farther from home)
On the mountain of sin (on the mountain of sin)
I had travelled so long (I had travelled so long)
Like the prodigal son (like the prodigal son)
All my goods I had squandered (sadly I roamed)
But the Savior came in (but the Savior came in)
And He gave me a song (twas a beautiful song)

I can tell you now the time (I can tell you the time),
I can take you to the place (I can show you the place)
Where the Lord saved me (where the Lord saved me)
By His wonderful grace (by His wonderful grace)
But I can not tell you how (for I know not the how)
And I can not tell you why (and I know not the why)
But He’ll tell me all about it (He will tell me all about it)
In the by and by (in the by and by)

Just a sinner was I (Just a sinner was I),
Far away from my Savior (going alone)
With no hope of reward (with no hope of reward),
At the end of the way (at the end of the way)
But the Savior came down (but the Saviour came down),
And He gave me His favour,
Now I’m singing his praise (now I’m singing His praise),
For He saved me that day (truly saved me that day)

I can never forget (I can never forget)
When He spoke to me gently (follow thou me)
In the fountain of life (in the fountain of life)
There’s a balm for your soul (there’s a balm for your soul)
So I heeded His voice (so I heeded His voice),
He was speaking intently (glady I see)
Through His marvelous grace (through His marvelous grace)
I am happy and whole (I am happy and whole)

Adger M. Pace (Adger McDavid), 1882-1959
