From the Inbox: Worship Music

- a composer friend kindly sent these lyrics along. I love them, and I want to hear the final version set to DRUMS as soon as possible. They are loosely indebted to Charles Wesley. What do we think?! Can you envision this on an overhead projector...?

Come, thou long expected Jesus
Come to set your brothers free
From our fears and sins release us
Let us find our hope in thee.

Come, our strength and consolation
Joy of all the world thou art
Dear Desire of every nation,
Lead us to your burning heart.

Jesus, you are all-sufficient
Take us to your Father's throne
Till we cast our crowns before you
Calling 'holy, Lord alone.'

Come, thou Faithful to deliver
Come, thou able to defend
Come, thou Prince of Heaven's glory
Come, thou prisoners' dearest friend.

Come Redeemer, Come Creator
Come the Servant, Christ our Lord
Come, thou faithful to remember
Come, thou Heaven's only Word.
