about

Come ye souls by, sin afflicted / Bowed with fruitless, sorrow down
By the broken law convicted / Through the cross, behold the crown
Look to Jesus, look to Jesus, look to Jesus / Mercy flows through Him alone

This, our ninth project, comes out of an incredibly difficult season for many in our Indelible Grace community. As I reflect on how God has met us, I am struck again by two themes reflected in this collection of hymns. We long for a place of true rest and wholeness and we need songs that give voice to that ache, that homesickness that we feel so viscerally in our sorrow. But many of us would also testify to the reality that we have found the Lord’s presence and tasted His sweetness in new ways during this season. This collection of hymns centers around these two realities. We long for heaven, but in the meantime taste the "joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory" (1 Peter 1:8).

Augustine once said, “He who sings, prays twice.” Singing intensifies what we are feeling, both the longing and the sweetness we can taste even in the midst of our sorrow. As we look to Jesus through the cross, we behold that our King wears the crown of thorns. He knows sorrow beyond what we have experienced. This does not make light of our suffering. In fact, it gives us a doorway into experiencing sweet communion with Jesus and tasting just a hint of what it felt like for Him to love us to the utmost on the cross.

Sweet as home to pilgrims weary / Light to newly, opened eyes
Like full springs in deserts dreary / Is the rest the cross supplies
All who taste it, all who taste it, all who taste it / Shall to rest immortal rise

Rev. Kevin Twit

Track Name: Julie Melucci - Come, O Come, Thou Holy Spirit
1. Come, o come Thou Holy Spirit
Light and life Thy grace imparts
Blessed Source of consolation
Guide our minds and fill our hearts
Grant my mind and my affections
Wisdom, counsel, purity
That I may be ever seeking
Only that which pleases Thee
Only that which pleases Thee

2. Savior lead us to adore Thee
By the true and living way
Then with angel hosts before Thee
May we worship, love and praise
Dwell within us, precious Spirit
Where Thou art no ill can come
Bless us now through Jesus' merit
Reign in every heart and home
Reign in every heart and home

3. Holy Spirit, strong and mighty
Thou who makest all things new
Make Thy work within me perfect
Help me by Thy word so true
In Thy faith, O make me steadfast
Let not Satan, death or shame
Of my confidence deprive me
Lord, my refuge is Thy name
Lord, my refuge is Thy name

4. When my final hour approaches
Let my hopes grow yet more bright
Let Thy love which never fails me
Dissipate the gloom of night
From that height which knows no measure
Fairer far than voice can tell
In Thy glorious courts of heaven
There, redeemed by Christ, to dwell
There, redeemed by Christ, to dwell
Track Name: Blessing Offor - Heal Us
CHORUS:
Heal us, Emmanuel, here we are
We long to feel Thy touch
Deep wounded souls to Thee we fly
O Savior hear our cry

1. Our faith is feeble, we confess
We faintly trust Thy word
But will You pity us the less?
Be that far from You Lord!

2. Remember him who once applied
With trembling for relief
“Lord, I believe,” with tears he cried
“O help my unbelief!"

3. She, too, who touched you in the press
And healing virtue stole
Was answered, “Daughter, go in peace
Thy faith has made thee whole.”

4. Like her, with hopes and fears we come
To touch You if we may
O send us not despairing home
Send none unhealed away
Track Name: Emily DeLoach - Come Ye Souls By Sin Afflicted (Look To Jesus)
1. Come ye souls by, sin afflicted,

Bowed with fruitless, sorrow down;

By the broken, law convicted,

Through the cross, behold the crown;

Look to Jesus; Look to Jesus; Look to Jesus;
Mercy flows through Him alone.

2. Take His easy, yoke and wear it;

Love will make your, obedience sweet;

Christ will give you, strength to bear it,

While His grace, shall guide your feet

Safe to glory, Safe to glory, Safe to glory,
Where His ransomed captives meet.

3. Blessèd are the, eyes that see Him,

Blest the ears that, hear His voice;

Blessèd are the, souls that trust Him,

And in Him, alone rejoice;

His commandments, His commandments, His commandments
Then become their happy choice.

4. Sweet as home to, pilgrims weary,

Light to newly, opened eyes,

Like full springs in, deserts dreary,

Is the rest, the cross supplies;

All who taste it, All who taste it, All who taste it
Shall to rest immortal rise.

Tag: Look to Jesus; Look to Jesus; Look to Jesus;
Mercy flows through Him alone.

Are subdued and all is still

In Thy power I’ll arise

That Jesus bears us on His heart, on His heart

Find eternal noon in me

God, your Everlasting Light

Pure, unbounded love Thou art
Visit us with thy salvation
Enter every trembling, every trembling heart

Into every troubled breast

Let us find the promised rest
Take away the love of sinning
Alpha and Omega be
End of faith, as its beginning
Set our hearts at liberty, at liberty

Suddenly return, and never
Nevermore Thy temples leave

Pure and spotless let us be
Let us see Thy great salvation
Perfectly restored in Thee
Changed from glory into glory
Til in heaven we take our place
Til we cast our crowns before Thee
Lost in wonder, love, in wonder, love and praise

O’er it shines a nightless day
Every tear from sin’s sad story
All the curse has passed away

I feel the toilsome journey’s length
Thine aid omnipotent I seek

Through life, in death, eternally
Thou art my All
Thou art my All

Thou art my Light
Thou art my Light

In that tremendous latest strife
Thou will not suffer me to sink
Thou art my Life
Thou art my Life
Thou art my Life
