Miss Streisand's arrangement of "Just In Time" is part of a piano work of four hands called "Bridal Suite" written by Leonard Bernsein for Adolph Green and his wife, Phyllis Newman, as a wedding gift. The opening section of the work is called "Prelude" and was intended to be played by the Greens. Since Mr. Bernsein knew Mr. Green was studying the First Bach Prelude, he used this renowned composition as Mr. Green's half, against which Miss Newman was given the melodic line of he Comdem-Green-Styne song "Just In Time" to play, with the whole blending together miraculously, amazingly and touchingly.

Just in time
I found you just in time
Before you came, my time
Was running low,
I was lost,
The losing dice were tossed,
My bridges all were crossed
Nowhere to go,
Now you're here
And now I know just where I'm going
No more doubt or fear
I found my way
For love came just in time
I found you just in time
And changed my lonely life and lucky day
