Future Past from John Mark McMillan

Standard

The new song, Future Past, from John Mark McMillan is a worship cult classic. It will infect the Church. If you’ve followed John Mark’s music you know it’s been a progression to this sound, to these lyrics, and a story that’s brought us here–to this. From How He Loves, Skeleton Bones, Carbon Ribs, The Medicine, through Economy, some killer videos, nights and nights in all our cities, days weeks and months away from his family, and lots of wind through the windpipe…. to this. Future Past is one of those worship songs I hope rises with a fury. I can’t describe this song more than the videos and lyrics below. In all the years hearing people describe and deconstruct, “What is worship?”, it’s John Mark that I’ve heard add most to the conversation, and often with the simplest of descriptions. I love John Mark McMillan’s quote: “Worship isn’t music, you know, just like love isn’t kissing–but where there’s worship there will be music, like where there’s love there will be kissing.”

Watch the videos, read the lyrics, get the song and worship with it.

Lyrics to Future Past by John Mark McMillan

You hold the reins on the sun and moon
Like horses driven by kings
You cover the mountains and valleys below
With the breadth of Your mighty wings
All treasures of wisdom and things to be known
Are hidden inside of your hand
In this fortunate turn of events
You ask me to be Your friend

You, you are my first, you are my last
You are my future and my past
You, you are my first, you are my last
You are my future and my past

The constellations are swimming inside
The breath of your desires
Where could I run, where could I hide
From Your heart’s jealous fire
All treasures of wisdom and things to be known
Are hidden inside your hand
In this fortunate turn of events
You ask me to be Your friend

You, you are my first, you are my last
You are my future and my past
You, you are my first, you are my last
You are my future and my past

You are the beginning and the end
You are the beginning and the end

You, you are my first, you are my last
You are my future and my past
You, you are my first, you are my last
You are my future and my past
