Pilgrimsprog releases new song "Ordinary Time"

Press release:
Pilgrimsprog releases new song "Ordinary Time". This is the latest song from the upcoming CD "Here I Am", which will be released in 2015.

Some people only know of Jesus from Christmas and Easter. But I want to know him every day.

This is inspired by a line from "Between the Giants": A Christmas Play by Rebecca Wimmer. In the play they make a statement that if you only know of Jesus from Christmas and Easter then it is like knowing someone at his birth and his death without knowing any of his life between.

I was also amused to see the season/period of time between Lent/Easter/Pentecost and Advent/Christmas on the liturgical church calendar is called Ordinary Time. I want to know him in the Ordinary Time, and the ordinary times in life.

"Ordinary Time", from Pilgrimsprog, is a textured song with acoustic guitars, organ, and choir

LISTEN :

BUY :
Pilgrimsprog - "Ordinary Time" on Bandcamp.

Coming soon to iTunes and Amazon

Pilgrimsprog is a progressive rock project, the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Scott Miller. "Here I Am " will be the third studio album by Pilgrimsprog.

"Pilgrimsprog" is a progressive rock concept album released in 2010, based on John Bunyan’s Christian classic Pilgrim's Progress.

The 2013 album "Do You Have Thanatophobia?" was the sophomore release, and had rich themes of forgiveness, the scandal of the Cross, and the fear of death (Thanatophobia).

The upcoming album "Here I Am", will be released in early 2015.

Ordinary Time lyrics:

I heard of his birth, I was busy, I sent a card
I went to his funeral, But it didn't really hit me that hard
How can you paint a picture, From just these two extremes
Then he called on me, he called on me to really believe

Chorus:
I want to know as I am known, I want to see as I am seen
Not just Christmas and Easter, But all that's in between
I want to eat at his table, And learn at his feet
I want to know him in the Ordinary time

I heard of his miracles, none of them had happened to me
I heard of his teachings, Seemed controversial you see
How can you paint a picture, From just these two extremes
Then he called on me, he called on me to really believe

Bridge:
He's no longer in the manger
He's no longer on the tree
At the Right hand of the father
He knows your every need
He knows your every need

Lyrics:
Who will pay the price? Who will take the blame?
Who will pay the debt for all my shame?
The Son stepped forward and He raised His hand
I will go and die for sinful man
To fulfill my Father's plan
Oh here I am

His blood was shed, He suffered for me
The veil was torn, To see me free
The Son stepped forward and He raised His hand
The nail was driven in by sinful man
To fulfill the Father's plan
Oh here I am

Here I am – It is written about me in the scroll
Here I am – I have come to make my people whole
Here I am – sin will never take control again
Oh here I am
