about

The idea for this song, Come Lord Jesus, came as I was reading a book by C.S. Lewis called the "Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe" to my five year old daughter. C.S. Lewis wrote this book as an allegory for the Gospel. In this captivating story there is a white witch who had kept Narnia under her spell for a hundred long years. It was always winter and never Christmas. Everyone suffered under her rule and everyone who opposed her was turned to stone.

Then Aslan, the Creator of Narnia and the Christ figure of the book, returns to Narnia. The white witch loses her power. Everything thaws and Spring comes in a single day. The birds are singing, trees and flowers are blooming. It is beautiful!

As I read that to my daughter, a thrill came to my heart. I thought about the day when Jesus will come back to this world he created. The devil will lose his power and my prayer is that our hearts, which the devil has kept frozen, untrusting, and suspicious of the true nature of Jesus, will thaw at his return!

This is also what happens to anyone who comes to the Lord. Spring enters our heart. All your life previous to knowing Christ was the longest, hardest, most brutal winter you'll ever know and then you meet Jesus! Spring has come at long last!

The first century church had an Aramaic word they used to greet each other: "Maranatha", which means, "Our Lord is coming" or "Come Oh Lord".

Jesus is returning soon!

lyrics

The winter's passing on and spring has
Come, come, come Lord Jesus
Our hearts are thawing ever drawing
Near to you Lord Jesus
(repeat)

Fill our hearts with love and beauty
Fill our lives now, Holy Spirit
(repeat)

The trees are reaching for Yeshua,
Come, come, come Lord Jesus
The birds are singing Hallelujah,
Come, come, come Lord Jesus

Fill our hearts with love and beauty
Fill our lives now Holy Spirit
Fill our hearts with love and beauty
Fill our lives now, Holy Spirit
(repeat)

Spring rain is falling down,
Spring rain is washing out,
(repeat)

All the filth, all the things we could do without
All the pain, all the stains you are cleansing out
All the filth, all the things we could do without
All the shame, all the stains you are cleansing out…

(Instrumental)

Come Lord Jesus, Come Lord Jesus
Come Lord Jesus, Come Lord Jesus

The winter's passing on and spring has
Come, come, come Lord Jesus
Our hearts are thawing ever drawing
Near to you Lord Jesus

Come, come, come Lord Jesus
Come, come, come Lord Jesus
