It Is Time
by Haven Yates

D                                                                                C                                                   G
It’s a long dark road and a heavy load is pressing down from your foot to your crown
D                                                                                    C                              G
It’s a rising tide but your fears can ride on promises in the mouth of a dove
A                                                                                     G                            D
The shadows longer and the end is nearer, trivial less magnetic
A                                                                              G                                        A
It’s time to wake up, lose your sleep before the clock makes its last tick

D                                                   C                G
The whole host cries, it is time, it’s time
D                 C               G
Rise, it is time, it’s time

D                                                                         C                                                       G
It seems so long though it is a vapor, everything is clearer on the other side
D                                                                                       C                                             A
I felt so strong the more I know I’m weaker, I think I’m free I see my hands are tied

D                                                   C                G
The whole host cries, it is time, it’s time
D                C                G
Rise, it is time, it’s time

A                             Em      G                                    D
Forget your mistakes,     in grace walk away
A                                        Em    G                            A
You have what it takes,      today is the day

D                                                  C               G
The whole host cries, it is time, it’s time
D                C                G
Rise, it is time, it’s time
D                                                     C             G
Live in the truth, you have already lied
D                                                             C             G
Don’t kill your dreams, He has already died

The Cost
by Haven Yates

Father, help me let go of what I need to call done
Help me cling to the hand of Your perfect guiding Son
Help me put away what needs to be through
And live my every day devoted to You

I need not bear the cost of being lost in this earth
I’m gonna put my treasure where it has eternal worth
For me to live is Christ and to die is gain
And heaven’s where true life begins so while I’m here I’ll live for His name
Yeah Lord I’ll live for Your name

We like to live for power or position or we just live in the past
We store up all our treasure where it isn’t gonna last
We live for today, and we ignore what’s on the way
We pass up what’s great so we can have what’s okay

I need not bear the cost of being lost in this earth
I’m gonna put my treasure where it has eternal worth
For me to live is Christ and to die is gain
And heaven’s where true life begins so while I’m here I’ll live for His name
Yeah Lord I’ll live for Your name

This life is a vapor we will soon go away
We will rise, we will fly, it’s gonna be a glorious day
These tents we’ll leave behind, with the garbage we accrue
We look with joy to find eternity to be with You, with You

With my hands I lift my heart to the sky
I give all that I am to the Lord on high
I’ll never stray from the way there is only one
I run the race to embrace the Son
