ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER PLACE
by Sandi Patty
I've always heard there is a land
beyond the mortal dreams of man.
Where every tear will be left behind
But it must be another time.
There'll be an everlasting light
shining a purest holy white
And every fear willl be erased
but it must be another place.
So I'm waiting, for another time, another place.
Where all my hopes and dreams will be captured
with one look at Jesus' face.
Oh, my heart's been burning, my soul's been yearning
Sometimes I can hardly wait
For that sweet, sweet someday
when I'll be swept away
to another time, another place.
I've grown tired of eartly things.
They promise peace but furnish pain.
All of life's sweetest joys combined
can never match those in another time
And though I put my trust in Christ
And felt His spirit move in my life
I know it's truly just a taste
of His glory in another place.
