How Time Flies is an official compilation album by Christian singer - songwriter Wayne Watson, released on September 9, 1992 by DaySpring/Word Records.

This collection features nine tracks from Watson's DaySpring albums Giants in the Land, Watercolour Ponies and The Fine Line, plus two new tracks, a re-recording of his early 1980s signature song "Touched of the Master's Hand" and his hymn cover of "It Is Well With My Soul" from the 1989 various artists album Our Hymns. The new tracks were produced by Watson and musician Tim Miner. How Time Flies peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. In 1993, Watson released a video extended play (EP) titled It's Time featuring the music videos of "It's Time" and "There Is a Greater Love" (the two new tracks) plus an acoustic performance of "Touch of the Master's Hand."
