Words and music by Bob Hartman

One moment gone into the past
But here and now will never last
You made the most of your design
You've walked alone
You held the line
That's when you know you've passed
The test of time

The time has come, the time has gone
The time is now, but not for long
Before you take a second glance
Redeem the time and take a chance
It's not too late to pass

(Chorus)
The test of time
And the time is passing every moment that you take
The test of time
It's the test of choices that you have to make
It's what you're doin' and how you're livin'
It's how you're spending the time you're given
The test of time

Tomorrow is a chance that may not come
Today is still the day God gives us
To see things done
Your own test of time has begun

Time will slip away
Every moment passing by
The choices that we make will stand the test of time
Time will slip away
Every moment passing by
The choices that we make will stand the test of time
