Savior Redeemer

Do not delay, You are coming again,
our hearts in Your hands, fan the flame

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!


...that our eyes would see what you would see, that our ears would hear what you would hear, that our hearts would be open to your love as we welcome You in Lord, we welcome you in...

This song began as a chorus I sung out spontaneously during a sound check prior to one of the "Why stand with Israel" conferences hosted by our community in Spokane, WA.  

The truth of being a physical host for the presence of God has always carried much weight in my personal walk with the Lord. From an early age I was encouraged to create room and time for the Lord. The idea that He lives inside of us and wants communion with us all the time created a deep longing to let Him know how much I wanted Him with me.

As a worship leader, my hearts desire is to help to create an atmosphere where our personal temples come together to form a corporate sanctuary.  My desire to begin our community worship sessions in unity, my heart and then my mouth released this chorus. The words "we welcome You in" became an anthem of our corporate yearning to host Jesus and to invite Him to dwell with us.
