The Mission Bell album version:
The winds are blowing through again,
So we must follow.
A people daring to believe,
We can change tomorrow.
And be the miracle of light,
And we won't give up the fight.

Now is the time for us to shine,
Shine with the face of Christ divine.
No compromise, for all heaven cries,
Now is the time.

The river's running through again rejuvenating,
For everything You touch You change,
And we've all been changing.
We're a city shining on a hill,
Tell this world You're shining still,
Tell this world You always will

Hey

Now is the time for us to shine,
Shine with the face of Christ divine.
No compromise for all heaven cries,
Now is the time.

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus, King of Lights,
Jesus, Jesus, raise a church that's shining bright.
I want to follow
But what does it mean
To live in this world
And keep everything clean
Nothing I own here
Is ever my own
When I live in the mercy
And blessing You've shown
I lay down my rights,
See the world through Your eyes
And fight for the hungry
Who pay for our lives
I want to have You
In all of my world
So Jesus consume me,
Flow through me,
Cos now is the time for us to shine

Cos now is the time for us to shine,
Shine with the face of Christ divine.
No compromise for all heaven cries,
Now is the time





Now Is The Time album version:
Spoken:
You know people, now is the time
Here we go
Hey, hey

The winds are blowing through again
So we must follow
A people daring to believe
We can change tomorrow
And be the miracle of light,
And we won't give up the fight

Now is the time for us to shine,
Shine with the face of Christ divine.
No compromise, for all heaven cries,
Now is the time

The river's running through again rejuvenating,
For everything You touch You change,
And we've all been changing.
We're a city shining on a hill,
Tell this world You're shining still,
Tell this world You always will.

Church, are you ready - spoken

Now is the time for us to shine,
Shine with the face of Christ divine.
No compromise, for all heaven cries,
Now is the time

Jesus - spoken

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus, King of Lights
Jesus, Jesus, raise a church that's shining bright
I want to follow
But what does it mean
To live in this world
And keep everything clean
Nothing I own here
Is ever my own
When I live in the mercy
And blessing You've shown
I lay down my rights,
See the world through Your eyes
And fight for the hungry
Who pay for our lives
I want to have You
In all of my world
So Jesus consume me,
Flow through me,
Cos now is the time for us to shine.

Shine with the face of Christ divine.
Now is the time, cos now

Now is the time for us to shine,
Shine with the face of Christ divine.

Now is the time for us to shine
Each and every one to shine

Spoken:
Whenever, though, they turn to face God as Moses did
God removes the veil, and there they are, face to face
They suddenly recognized that God is a living, personal presence
Not a piece of chiseled stone
When God is personally present, a living Spirit,
That old constricting legislation is recognized as obsolete
We're free of it
All of us
Nothing between us and God
Our faces shining with the brightness of His face
And so we are transfigured, much like the Messiah
Our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful
As God enters our lives
And we become more like Him

The time for us to shine,
Shine with the face of Christ divine, yeah.

'Cos Now is the time for us to shine,
(You shine) Shine with the face of Christ divine.

Now, now

'Cos now is the time for us to shine,
Shine with the face of Christ divine.
Come on
No compromise, for all heaven cries,
Now is the time

Whoa, now, now, now is the time, whoa, yeah

Glory to God
