Lyrics

I’ve been thinking ’bout time and where does it go
How can I stop my life from passing me by, I don’t know
I’ve been thinking ’bout family and how it’s going so fast
Will I wake up one morning just wishing that I could go back?

I’ve been thinking ’bout lately, maybe
I can make a change and let you change me
So, with all of my heart this is my prayer

Singing oh Lord, keep me in the moment
Help me live with my eyes wide open
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me

Singing oh Lord, show me what matters
Throw away what I’m chasing after
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me (what you have for me)

Keep me in the moment
Oh, keep me in the moment
Keep me in the moment
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me (oh)

When I wake up in the morning
Lord, search my heart
Don’t let me stray
I just wanna stay where you are

All I got is one shot, one try
One go around in this beautiful life
Nothing is wasted when everything’s placed in your hands

Singing oh Lord, keep me in the moment
Help me live with my eyes wide open
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me (what you have for me)

Singing oh Lord, show me what matters
Throw away what I’m chasing after
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me (what you have for me)

Keep me in the moment (keep me in the moment)
Lord keep me in the moment (keep me in the moment)
Keep me in the moment
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me

I’ve been thinking about heaven
And the promise you hold
So, it’s all eyes on you
Until the day you call me home

Singing oh Lord, keep me in the moment
Help me live with my eyes wide open
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me
(I don’t wanna miss, I don’t wanna miss)
Singing oh Lord, show me what matters
Throw away what I’m chasing after (oh)
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me (yeah)

Keep me in the moment
Oh, keep me in the moment
Keep me in the moment
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me

Keep me in the moment (keep me in the moment)
Oh, keep me in the moment (keep me in the moment)
Keep me in the moment
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me (what you have for me)

It can be so easy to forget that God is in every moment of our lives and miss so many opportunities that He has for us. This song is an incredible encouragement to not let those moments pass us by, and to live in constant anticipation of what God's promises and what He is going to do!

Jeremy Camp shares, "When I wrote this song, it really was inspired by a conversation with my wife Adrienne. We were talking and realizing that our daughter Bella only has a few more years in the house with us because she's going to go off to college. It really sent us on a trajectory of being more intentional with her, and of course the whole family and just realizing how fast time goes, and I don't want to miss out on any moment. I realize so much with our society we live in, we have our faces buried in our phone so much, and we're not even keeping our eyes open to things around us - that God may be trying to reveal things in our family, in friends in our lives or whatever it may be. We're so caught up so many times in what’s next or what’s tomorrow or planning for next year and I’m not saying planning is wrong, but we may miss what God has for us today. And for me, I don't want to miss anything that God has for me. I want to stay in the moment. It's been a life lesson for us right now and kind of a reset button and it’s been so good, I pray it encourages you guys."
