The Song Story


I was never someone who prayed for Jesus to return. Honestly, I thought more about going to be with Him someday than I ever thought about Him coming back to be with us. But on one occasion, I was reading Revelation 22. I don’t know about you…if you’ve ever read a verse in the Bible so many times but then one day, you read it and it just clicks. This happened to me. I was reading Revelation 22:17 and it says the Spirit and the Bride says come. And I went “hold up”. The Spirit…that’s the Holy Spirit. That means God is saying “Come, Jesus”. Then it says the Bride–that’s you and I–we’re called to join in. That is why this song exists. I want to long more for Jesus to return. I long to love people better towards His return. I want to build things that matter more towards His return. I want to join in with the Spirit of God and sing “Come!”

The Lyrics

Hank Bentley, Bryan Fowler, Stephen McWhirter, Tara McWhirter
Radio Version / CCLI# 7154136

Sometimes I fall to my knees and pray
Come Jesus come let today be the day
Sometimes I feel like I’m gonna break
But I’m holding on to a hope that won’t fade

Come Jesus Come
We’ve been waiting so long
For the day You return to heal every hurt
And right every wrong
We need you right now
Come and turn this around
Deep down I know this world isn’t home
Come Jesus come

One day He’ll come, and we’ll stand face to face
Come and lay it all down cause it might be today
The time is right now there’s no need to wait
Your past will be washed by rivers of grace

Come Jesus Come
We’ve been waiting so long
For the day You return to heal every hurt
And right every wrong
We need you right now
Come and turn this around
Deep down I know this world isn’t home
Come Jesus come
Come Jesus come
Come Jesus come

KLOVE debuts the song as a FUTURE HIT

Beautiful encouragement from the Pacific Northwest!
“I wasn’t expecting to cry today. I was moved deeply by not only the song, but Stephen’s testimony about it.  I don’t think we don’t need another “hit” song.  We need music that will help create space for the Spirit of God to convict, reprove and restore lonely and broken people.  That’s a tall order for a song to accomplish.  Which might explain why this has seemingly come out of nowhere.  I LOVE it.” — Rick Stevens, K-LIGHT Eugene, OR
