about

This song explores the feeling of being trapped between two realities: that in Christ we are freed from sin and death, yet we still experience sin and death in our lives - the already and the not yet of inaugurated eschatology. So we cling to two promises: that our circumstances will not always be this way, and that God is still present in the midst of them.

lyrics

I can't go on
I can't stay this strong
I tried to keep up this fight
But I can't save my life

Someday You will return
with power, glory, and honor
Forever reign
Someday we will see You
face-to-face like Moses
And know You by your name

But I need You right now
I need you more than ever
I need you to speak to me before I die

Someday You will return
with power, glory, and honor
Forever reign
Someday You will return
and wipe away every tears from our eyes
And we'll never be the same

But I need You right now
I need You more then ever
I need you to speak to me before I die

Jesus paid it all
All to Him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow

Oh praise the one
Who paid my debt
And raised this life
Up from the dead
