The Now and the Not Yet

No longer
what we were before
but not all that we will be
when we lock the door
on all our compromising
When he appears
he'll draw us near and we'll be
changed by his glory
wrapped up in his glory

but I'm caught in between
the now and the not yet
and sometimes it feels like
forever and ever
that I've been reaching to be all that I am
but I'm only a few steps nearer
yet I'm nearer

When this song was first recorded, I was too young to really get all the deep implications. I appreciate the song much more today.
