You were there when your Father said
Let there be light
You obeyed when He whispered
Son, You have to leave tonight
To spend nine months in a mothers womb
Three days in a borrowed tomb

But it's the time in between
That brings me to my knees
Knowing you came for me
And all that I can't be
I'm amazed, so amazed
And I thank You for the time in between

Don't take much for this crazy world
To rob me of my peace
And the enemy of my soul
Says You're holding out on me
So I stand here lifting empty hands
For you to fill me up again

But it's the time in between
That I fall down to my knees
Waiting on what You'll bring
And the things that I can't see
I know my song's incomplete
Still I'll sing in the time in between

So many ways
Your love has saved the day
And I'm grateful for them all

But it's the time in between
The middle of two thieves
That says everything
It's the reason I believe
I'm amazed, so amazed
And I thank you for the time in between
Oh Lord, I thank you for the time in between

    It's a song for jesus, to thank him for all the suffering he went through in hes life just because he loves us and wanted to save us. The time inbetween meaning after he was born and before he died.

    It just means a lot to me because i just love the fact that god sent his own son to save us and it makes me feel like i can't do enough to thank him for that it makes me kind of cry most of the time that i listen to it and it's because i just can't think of anything better than what this song talks about.

    If you think about how many times in a given day that we complain of our ills or wants not filled... If we think each day about what jesus did for us, what he went through for each of us through his love that we are beyond simply blessed. Once i really started to think on his life 'in between' and then thought of all the things i've asked god for, be it health, money or petty junk throughout my life i felt disgusted with myself... And then i started praying for the right things. All because of 'the time in between' not the song but literally.

    "time in between" refers to the time christ spent on earth between his birth and his death and resurrection. Because jesus came and spent time on earth, there is a reason for us to continue living on earth, just as he did.
