VERSE 1:
The battle line is drawn, it's all in black and white.
Hope is pulling forward, can feel it from behind, it's time.
It's time to make a move, so what will you decide?
The clock is ticking on, don't let it pass you by, it's time.
It's time.

CHORUS:
The time is now, for lifting souls.
The time is now, for letting go.
From your skin, to your core.
Let light, and love, come rushing through the door.
Oh, come rushing through the door.

VERSE 2:
You've learned every song, memorized the verse,
Took the bread and wine, and even bought the shirt,
It's time.
It's time to hold your shield,
It's time to draw your sword,
Let's be the resistance,
Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, it's time.
Yeah it's time.

CHORUS:
The time is now, for lifting souls.
The time is now, for letting go.
From your skin, to your core.
Let light, and love, come rushing through the door.

It's time to make a stand, so put your heart in greater hands,
From your skin, to your core,
Let light, and love, come rushing through the door.

BRIDGE:
Sisters, Brothers, thieves, and lovers,
Come uncover eternity.
Turn your faces from finite places,
Heaven's grace will set you free.

CHORUS:
The time is now, for lifting souls.
The time is now, for letting go.
From your skin, to your core.
Let light, and love, come rushing through the door.

It's time to make a stand, to put your heart in greater hands,
From your skin, to your core,
Let light, and love, come rushing through the door.
Instrumental (Strings)
Oh, come rushing through the door...

    It's definitely a challenge. "you've learned every song, memorized the verse,
    Took the bread and wine, and even bought the shirt; it's time. "
    We cannot stop at just doing the things christians are "supposed" to do, we have to act. We have to "be the resistance. "

    This song is a challenge to go deeper in your walk with god. It's a challenge to stop being just a "sunday christian" and become a real follower after christ (kind of like the disciples were).
