Whitecross – Can You Tell Me The Time lyrics

Went walkin', people were a gawkin'
Saw him like many times before
He was dirty, a little topsy turvey
No one cared about the burden he bore

I was thinkin', man this dude's been drinkin'
Could he even hear what I had to say
My nerves a jumpin', heart started pumpin'
As he looked up I started to pray

O dear Lord please give me wisdom and help me to be led
He walked up to me, looked right at me, and this is what he said

Say, can you tell me the time
Time to be leavin'
Hey, can you tell me the time
It's time for you to see
Say, won't you tell me the time
Time to be receivin'
Hey there, looky here, I'll make it clear
If you listen, I'll tell you the time

Well, I told 'em the lies the devil sold him
Would only bring more pain to his heart
There was Someone I knew he could rely on
To help give his life a brand new start

And all the burdens that he had always carried
Could be buried by Calvary's love
The price was paid there, but no He didn't stay there
He conquered death so we could join Him above

Dear Lord won't ya please forgive me, I led him as he prayed
And from now on he will be ready for that rapture day

Now he can tell you the time
And now he is believin'
Hey he can tell you the time
His blinded eyes can see
Oh he can tell you the time
The time he did receive Him

No more Mr. Poor, brand new score
When he prayed, he opened the door

And now he turns to you
And in him there are changes
He knows just what to do
He knows a lot of funny strangers
And all the love he's found
Puts an end to eternal danger
He's tellin' you the time is now
Check out this guitar sound

Say, can you tell 'em the time
Hey, can you tell 'em the time
Won't you tell 'em the time

Don't ya pout, never doubt, check it out
Tell 'em what it's all about

Say, can you tell me the time
Time to be leavin'
Hey, can you tell me the time
It's time for you to see
Say, won't you tell me the time
Time to be receivin'
Hey there, looky here, I made it clear
