Before This World / Jolly Springtime - James Taylor

Before this world was as we know it now
Before the land and sea were formed at all
Before the stars were made to burn and shine
Little love of mine, darling one

Who can pretend to understand at all
No one can both inside and outside be
Who can suppose he knows the way this goes
Little lamb, never mind

So let us love and let us not delay
The world is old and it will never last
Our share of joy is in this moment past
Will you come away, come away

Fall into Jesus baby child
Give up the love that takes and breaks your heart
Let go the weight of all that holds you here
Little love of mine, darling one

Oh the jolly springtime
In the merry month of May
Oh the heavenly hours
Oh the come again day

Let the day run long
Let the river run high
That tomorrow may live
So must yesterday die

Let the resin risin' up in the tree
Make the green leaf bud
The bird and the bee and the fish in the sea
Feeling it in my blood

Oh the jolly springtime
All in the merry month of May
Oh the heavenly hours
Oh the come again day

Yes the winter was bitter and long
So the spring'll be sweet
Come along with a rhythm and a song
Watch creation repeat

Thin thin the moment is thin
Ever so narrow the now
Everybody say got to live in today
Don't nobody know how

Oh the jolly springtime
In the merry month of May
Oh the heavenly hours
Oh the come again day
