I wrote this song when I was about 16. It simply came as a cry for His return. Even as a teenager there was a longing to know the Lord truly and a cry for revival in His body. Not long after the birth of this song a church in Pennsylvania picked it up and began singing it regularly in their Sunday services.
This song has been translated to French and sung in the French speaking world for the last 10 years. I wasn't really sure whether to record it on this album as it has been recorded before, but as I played it for the producer I felt a fresh renewal on the song. My brother and Isaac and I began to play around a bit with a different melody in the beginning and as we came to the end of the song I began singing" do not delay, You are coming again, our hearts in Your hands, fan the flame". That day in the studio, I felt intercession released from deep inside of me for His return and I know that we captured that when we recorded it a few weeks later. It's has now become one of my favorites on the album, and the title track!
