"This Is Your Time" as written by Michael W. Smith and Wes King....
It was a test that we could all hope to pass
But none of us would want to take
Faced with the choice to deny God and live
For her there was one choice to make

This was her time
This was her dance
She lived every moment
Left nothing to chance

She swam in the sea
Drank of the deep
Embraced the mystery of all she could be
This was her time

Though you are mourning and grieving your loss
Death died a long time ago
Swallowed in life so that life carries on
Still it's so hard to let go

What if tomorrow
And what if today
Faced with the question
Oh what would you say

This is your time
This is your dance
Make every moment
Leave nothing to chance

Swim in the sea
Drink of the deep
Call on the mercy
Hear yourself praying

Won't You save me
Won't You save me

    General Commentit was originally intended as a dedication to Cassie Bernal, but I associate it more with Rachel Joy Scott.

    General CommentThis reminds me of Columbine, but I think that is the intent of the author. It was Cassie's time to say 'yes' to God, and we need to be ready to say yes also!

    General Commentthe song IS about the columbine shooting. every time i hear it, i have to start crying, especially on the part 'fall on the mercy hear yourself pray, won't you send me?' anyone who knows of the life of Cassie Bernall or of the Columbine shooting, please listen to this song, it really helps get through all the shit that's been happening in the world lately. Cassie, the world will never be the same without you. Do I believe in God? Yes, Cassie. Thank you.

    General CommentEverybody needs to read the book "She Said Yes" by Cassie's mom. It amazes me that Cassie was deeply invovled in Wicca or something like that before she became a Christian shortly before the shootings.
