The Holy Now

The following are the Lyrics from a song that has been nearly impossible for me to forget…

Read the Lyrics, and listen,…  It will be well worth your time,

God Bless, Scott.

The Holy Now, by Peter Mayer

On Sunday, we would go to church

And pay attention to the priest

He would read the holy word and consecrate the holy bread

And everyone would kneel and bow


Today the only difference is everything is holy now

When I was in Sunday school we would learn about the time

Moses split the sea in two,

Jesus made the water wine and I remember feeling sad

That miracles don’t happen still


But now I can’t keep track ‘Cause everything’s a miracle

Everything’s a miracle

Wine from water is not so small

But an even better magic trick

Is that anything is here at all

So the challenging thing becomes

Not to look for miracles  

But finding where there isn’t one

When holy water was rare at best it barely wet my fingertips

But now I have to hold my breath like I’m swimming in a sea of it


It used to be a world half there

Heaven’s second rate hand-me-down

But I walk it with a reverent air

‘Cause everything is holy now

Everything is holy now

Read a questioning child’s face and say it’s not a testament that’d be very hard to say

See another new morning come and say it’s not a sacrament

I tell you that it can’t be done

This morning, outside I stood and saw a little red-winged bird

Shining like a burning bush, Singing like a scripture verse

It made me want to bow my head


I remember when church let out

How things have changed since then

Everything is holy now

It used to be a world half-there

Heaven’s second rate hand-me-down

But I walk it with a reverent air
