Words by Orin Johnson based on a poem by Helen Mallicoat, used with permission, Music by Orin Johnson
I have been your God since time began, yet my name is not “I Was,”
And I will be your God to the end of the earth, yet my name is not “I Will Be.”
I am your God of here and now, in this moment I am here,
My name is not “I Was” nor “I Will Be,” my name is “I AM.”
The past, with its mistakes and regrets is hard, the present has not these.
The future has its fears and its problems too, it is best to let them be.
