Quite a Time

What better way to close the album than with a duet from its two creators. Here we imagine the morning after the birth. Mary and the baby are sound asleep recovering from the effort, but the party goes on amongst the wise ones, the shepherds and perhaps even some of the animals. How could the party not have gone on? Actually, it never stopped. It’s called “Christmas.”

Lyrics

Quite A Time
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Isn’t it quite a time
Holy
Isn’t it quite a day
Christ is born
Isn’t it quite a place
This manger
Here in the Father’s house
On this day

Isn’t he quite the child
Sleeping
Feel the peace he brings
Child of God
Isn’t it quite a thing
Of wonder
Here in the miracle
Of this day

In this simple backcountry stable
The Father’s son, the savior is born
Born into this humble straw cradle
And now the world awaits the promise of this
Glorious morn

Isn’t it quite a time
Hosanna
We welcome ascendant man
This sweet child
Here in our Father’s house
Holy
And oh how the world will change
From this day forth

It’s time to sing hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu
Hallelujah
Isn’t it time to sing hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu
Hallelu

Here beneath a star we have gathered
Here in that manger
Here to celebrate this moment sublime
Knowing that we stand on this threshold
Glorifying God in this moment in time

Isn’t it quite the hour
Holy
Isn’t it quite the time
To celebrate
Gloria
It’s a new day of promise
Isn’t it quite the day
Of promise
Isn’t it quite a time
The Christ is born
Isn’t it quite a time
Isn’t it quite a time
Isn’t it quite a time for Heaven
To come and visit Earth
Isn’t it quite a time
Whoo Whoo Whoo Whoo
