Time has an appointment which it is sure to keep
Suddenly it will arrive as steadily it creeps
We live our lives within the approaching of its day
We laugh, we cry, we live, we die as time comes without delay

God holds within His sovereign hand, it is not yours nor mine
A time for every purpose, a purpose for every time
It is not a matter of if, but when it will arrive
From its appointed destination there is no place to hide

As a time for every purpose heeds the voice of God's command
Suddenly time will arrive to serve its Master's hand
The wisdom of God's prophets though spoken long ago
Suddenly will come to pass just as was foretold

Time pregnant with the word of God's omnipotent command
Will in its time give birth to the eternal life of man
And suddenly time and no time will embrace as one
As the fulfillment of all time finally has come

Then at last we'll know what we could not comprehend
The Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End
The bridegroom will appear to claim his long awaited bride
O'er the threshold of heaven's door he'll carry her inside

And time will then relinquish all that it has stored
Unto the omnipotent hand of its sovereign Lord
And like a faithful servant submit on bended knee
The purpose of its existence to all eternity.

Daniel 8:l9 - I am making know to you what shall happen in the latter time of the indignation; for at the appointed time, the end shall come.
Ephesians l:l0 - That in the dispensation of the fullness of the times, He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth in Him.
Luke 22:37 - "For the things concerning Me have an end."
Revelation 22:l2 - And behold I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.
