He lives in the fleeting glory
of an historic day long gone
He longs to recapture the moment
before it all went wrong
His soul has been caught in that moment
his mind frozen still in its tracks
He would give anything he could offer
if only that time could come back
But what has he missed as he planted
his feet firmly back in the past?
He has missed how the worst of his life
could lead to a future that lasts
Avoiding the problems before us
will lead us further down trails of deep pain
But when we trust God with the hard times
it will be a new life that we gain
So heed the hard lesson of a past-looking man
and know that the hard times won’t stay
for the God who gave life to your body
will to your soul give a victorious day
