Come, Now is the Time to Worship
February 15, 2009Chorus: Come, now is the time to worship
Come, now is the time to give your heart.
Come, just as you are to worship,
Come, just as you are before your God.
One day every tongue will confess You are God,
One day every knee will bow.
Still the greatest treasure remains
For those who gladly choose You now. (chorus)

Lord, I Lift Your Name on High
Lord, I lift Your name on high, Lord I love to sing Your praises.
I’m so glad You’re in my life, I’m so glad you came to save us.
You came from heaven to earth to show the way.
From the earth to the cross, my debt to pay.
From the cross to the grave, From the grave to the sky.
Lord, I lift Your name on high.
