THE DATE

IF YOU’VE EVER TRAVELED THE WORLD MY FRIEND

YOU’LL KNOW WHAT I SAY IS TRUE

EACH COUNTRY HAS ITS CURRENCY

WE ALL COULD NAME A FEW

AND ON EACH COIN, YOU’LL FIND A DATE

THE YEAR THE COIN WAS STRUCK

BUT DID YOU EVER STOP TO THINK,

THAT DATE GOT THERE BY LUCK?

EACH DATE BEARS TESTIMONY

OF THE COMING OF A KING

IT DOESN’T MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE

FROM NEW YORK to BEIJING

KING JESUS CHRIST DIVIDED TIME, FROM B.C. TO A.D.

AND EVERY COIN BEARS WITNESS TO THAT REALITY

THE COMMUNIST, THE MUSLIM, THE ATHEIST AND JEW

EACH COIN THEY HOLD, THE DATE DECLARES

HE CAME TO DIE FOR YOU

TWO THOUSAND YEARS HAVE COME AND GONE

SINCE GOD SENT US HIS SON

BUT FEWER YEARS BY FAR REMAIN

FOR HIS RETURN TO COME

NEXT TIME YOU HOLD A COIN, JUST THINK

ITS DATE WILL GUARANTEE

THAT SINCE CHRIST CAME THE FIRST TIME

HE’LL RETURN FOR YOU AND ME

NOW THINK OF ALL THE COINS YOU’VE HELD

YET NEVER REALIZED

THAT EACH RECALLS THE PROMISE

THAT CHRIST WAS PROPHESIED

AND SO, THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON

WE CELEBRATE CHRIST’S BIRTH

GOD’S PROMISE OF A SAVIOR

WHOSE DEATH, REVEALED OUR WORTH

SO WHY NOT STOP TO THANK HIM

FOR ALL HE’S DONE FOR YOU

FOR HIS GREAT LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS

FOR ALL HE’S BROUGHT YOU THROUGH?
