Standing at the water’s edge

I dropped my dreams when I dropped my nets

No hesitation, no regrets

I followed You

But that was then

And this is now

 

You washed my feet and You changed my name

I swore I’d never be the same

But just like the tides, I guess people change

Cause that was then

And this is now

 

CHORUS:

I wish I could go back but I don’t know how

I remember when I stood my ground

I swore I’d never let You down

I want to be that man again

But that was then

And this is now

 

I watched the blind man lift his head

And look his Savior in the eyes

I heard a dead man take a breath

Dropped to my knees as I watched him rise

And I felt the sea beneath my feet

As I stepped out on the angry waves

But You saw the storm raging within

You reached out and calmed me then

But this is now

 

CHORUS:

I wish I could go back but I don’t know how

I remember when I stood my ground

I swore I’d never let You down

I want to be that man again

But that was then

And this is now

 

Just when I thought my sin has closed the door

I see my Savior standing on the shore

With arms wide open

Just like the first time You called my name

You said that was then

And this is now

 

My child, I bore your cross, I wore your crown

When you couldn’t come to me, my love came down

So take My hand, I’ll lead you out

Cause that was then

And this is now

 

My child, I bore your cross, I wore your crown

You couldn’t come to me so my love came down

Take my hand, Ill lead you out

You’ll never be that man again

Cause that was then

And this is now
