Original Key: B


B
We've had a light shine in our midst,
Esus2/A
We've felt Your presence, we've known Your peace,
E/G♯
And though this blessing comes to us free
   B
It carries a challenge to go.
We've had a feast laid on for us,
Esus2/A
You have commanded "Bring in the lost",
E/G♯
There's food for all, any who'd come,
B
Any who would know Your Son.
bridge:
      G♯m7            B
We know it's time to go,
        G♯m7             B
We've heard the cries of all of the earth.
Esus2/A             E/G♯              B
Send us with power, we cannot do it alone.
     G♯m7             B
With passion for the lost
G♯m7                  B
We'll take the truth, whatever the cost;
Esus2/A            E/G♯                        B
Time is so short,  we cannot squander this love.
chorus:
           Esus2/A    E/G♯    B
Surely the time       has     come,
            Esus2/A      E/G♯    B
To bring the har    -    vest    home (Repeat)

WE'VE HAD A LIGHT
Shine in our midst
We've felt Your presence
We've known Your peace
And though this blessing
Comes to us free
It carries a challenge to go

We've had a feast laid on for us
You have commanded
Bring in the lost
There's food for all
Any who'd come
Any who would know Your son

We know it's time to go
We've heard the cries
Of all of the earth
Send us with power
We cannot do it alone
With passion for the lost
We'll take the truth
Whatever the cost
Time is so short
We cannot squander this love

Surely the time has come
To bring the harvest home
Surely the time has come
To bring the harvest home
