LYRICS

Not a second or another minute
Not an hour of another day
But at this moment with my arms outstretched
I need you to make a way as you have done so many times before.
Through a window or an open door,
I stretch my hands to thee
Come rescue me
I need you right away.

I need you now [x4]
Not another second or another minute
Not an hour of another day but, Lord
I need you right away

If I never needed you before
To show up and restore all of the faith that I let slip.
While I was yet searching the world for more, the truest friend I have indeed
You’re my best friend I know in need,
I stretch my hands to thee
Come rescue me
I need you right away.

The agony of being alone
The fear of doing things on my own
The test and trials that come to make me strong.
The feelings of guilt, hurt, shame, and defeat
The waves and trials that beat upon me
But to know, Lord, that in you I’ve got victory.

I need you now, Lord,
I need you now (ooooh)
I need you right now, right now, right now
I need you now
Oh, not another second, not another minute, Lord,
Can’t wait another day (oooh no, no)
Please, make a way (ooh, lord, ooh, God, ooo yeah)

ABOUT SMOKIE NORFUL

Smokie Norful’s Early Years

By the age of two, Smokie was picking out melodies on a toy piano, and by four he was playing and singing in his father’s church. At the age of 10, he was recorded for the first time as a featured artist on an album by a regional music director.

Smokie Norful’s College Years

After graduating high school, Smokie was still passionate about music, but he chose to study history at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff instead of choosing a music major. After finishing college, he spent the next four years as a high school history teacher.

In 1998, Norful’s life and career path took another turn as he felt like he was being called into ministry. He moved to Chicago in order to earn a Masters of Divinity degree from Garrett Theological Seminary.

Smokie Norful’s Big Break

After getting his Masters, Norful decided to stay in Chicago as an assistant pastor at the Rock of Ages Baptist Church. He was active in several church choirs, and he eventually caught the ear of Joe Anne Brunson, leader of the Thompson Community Choir, who asked him to sing one of his original songs for the choir’s Real album.

People from EMI Gospel heard Smokie on Real and quickly signed him in 2002, also signing him with EMI-CMG Publishing as a songwriter under his own Norful Music Publishing company. The rest, as they say, is history.
