Holy Now--Lyrics

By Peter Mayer

VERSE 1 When I was a boy each week, On Sunday we would go to church, Pay attention to the priest. And he would read the holy word, And consecrate the holy bread And ev'ryone would kneel and bow. Today the only dif'rence is Ev'rything is holy now. Evírything, evírything, ev'rything is holy now.

VESRE 2 When I was in Sunday school, We would learn about the time Moses split the sea in two, And Jesus made the water wine. And I remember feeling sad, Miracles don't happen still, And now I can't keep track Cause ev'rything's a miracle. Evírything, evírything, ev'rything's a miracle.

BRIDGE 1 Wine from water is not so small, But an even better magic trick Is that anything is here at all. So the challenging thing becomes Not to look for miracles, But finding where there isn't one.

VERSE 3 When holy water was rare at best It barely wet my fingertips. Now I have to hold my breath Like I'm swimmin' in a sea of it. It used to be a world half there, Heaven's second rate hand me down. Now I walk it with a reverent air, 'Cause ev'rything is holy now.

CHORUS Ev'rything is holy now. (8x)

BRIDGE 2 Read a questioning child's face And say it's not a testament. That'd be very hard to say. See another new morning come And say it's not a sacrament I tell you that it can't be done.

VERSE 4 This mornin' outside I stood. I saw a little red wing bird Shining like a burning bush, And singing like a scripture verse. It made me want to bow my head. I remember when church let out. How things have changed since then. Ev'rything is holy now.

VERSE 3 (second half) It used to be a world half there, Heaven's second rate hand me downs, Now I'm walking with a reverent air, 'Cause ev'rything is holy now.

CHORUS
