Representative Text

1 Now is the time to speak,
echoing Jesus' bold critique,
challenging those who scorn the meek:

Refrain:
Now is the perfect time.
Now is the moment.

2 Now is the time to pray,
pleading for vision in our day,
light to illuminate the way, [Refrain]

3 Now is the time to cry,
too many hunger, thirst and die
while we accuse, complain and lie. [Refrain]

4 Now is the time to sing,
knowing the mercies God can bring,
tuning our praise, remembering. [Refrain]
