Here and Now
Words & Music by Eddie Kirkland. ©2011 Songs At North Point. CCLI Song #6128713
We want to be a church where freedom reigns,
We want to be a people full of grace,
We want to be a shelter where the broken find their place.
We want to be a refuge for the weak,
We want to be a light for the world to see,
We want to be a love that breaks the walls and fills the streets.
All are welcome here, as we are, as we are,
For our God is near every heart
Let Your mercy rise, Let Your hope resound,
Let Your love in our hearts be found,
Let Your grace run free, let Your name bring peace,
Heaven come in the here and now
We want to be a door that’s open wide,
We want to see compassion come to life,
We want to carry truth that shines a beacon in the night.
We want to see the city filled with hope,
We want to bring peace to the troubled soul,
We want to tell the story of a God that we can know.
So let justice roll like a river wild,
Let mercy grow like a burning fire,
Let it come in the here and now,
Your kingdom come ’til it rules the earth,
Your will be done all around the world,
Let it come in the here and now
