Sometimes I wish I could turn back the clock of time
Back to the day before I gave in to Satan’s lie
Yet there is no going back, no returning to a past day
For time marches on despite what my heart may say

Only God holds time within His hand
Only He can change what should have been
We are not the keeper of our time on earth
Our days were allotted from the day of our birth

So many regrets I cannot say
Only through God do I find a brighter day
Though I remember all the sorrows of my past
from him those memories are forever cast

He puts them into the sea of forgetfulness
As to Him I repent from their heaviness
His forgiveness washes me whiter than snow
And cleans up my heart and my soul

In Him time marches on to brighter days
New days given by the maker of all things
For in Him my past slips away
And my heart again finally sings
