Come Fill My Heart

Written by Elton Smith, Larry Holder and Steve Israel
Links to contributors: Larry Holder, Steve Israel

Dan Zigler and I were working on a new play in which a young woman trapped in prostitution gives her life to Jesus. This song was written as a solo for that character. Be sure to see our play, also called Come Fill My Heart. There is also a real young lady that we know who is seeking redemption. She is the inspiration for the character in the play.

I wrote the music for this song. Steve, Larry and I worked together on the lyrics. Tina Arseneau shared the recordings. She used the midi file as background music and sang the song beautifully. - Elton, October 30, 2000

In August 2021, Elton started working on the recording and asked Steve for help. Steve recorded some instrumental tracks with guitar and organ, and remixed Tina's recording.

Languages for this song:



(Verse 1)
Come into my heart today,
Come and fill my very soul.
Come into my heart and stay --
You are all I need to know.
No one else in heav'n and earth
Shows Your mercy, grace, and love.
I turn to you and humbly pray
Pour Your blessings from above...

Come fill my heart,
Come live in my soul,
Restore the peace,
Lord, make me whole.
Mighty Savior, Lord most high,
Hear my yearning, hear my cry:
Come fill my heart,
Come live in my soul,
Restore the peace,
Lord, make me whole.
All I am, I give to You;
In Your grace, You'll see me through.
Come fill my heart!

(Verse 2)
Come into my heart today,
I have waited for so long.
Drive the sin and doubt away,
Give me hope to carry on.
Shower down on me Your grace
Till my cup will overflow.
Take me to a holy place
Let the faith within me grow...

(Repeat Chorus)
Come fill my heart,
Come live in my soul,
Restore the peace,
Lord, make me whole.
Mighty Savior, Lord most high,
Hear my yearning, hear my cry:
Come fill my heart,
Come live in my soul,
Restore the peace,
Lord, make me whole.
All I am, I give to You;
In Your grace, You'll see me through.
Come fill my heart!


(Verse 3)
Come into my heart today,
Come and heal my wounded soul.
Come into my heart, I pray --
Lord, To You, my life I owe.
You're the only one who saves,
There is nothing I can do.
I want to follow in Your Way,
That is why I ask of You...

(Repeat Chorus)
Come fill my heart,
Come live in my soul,
Restore the peace,
Lord, make me whole.
Mighty Savior, Lord most high,
Hear my yearning, hear my cry:
Come fill my heart,
Come live in my soul,
Restore the peace,
Lord, make me whole.
All I am, I give to You;
In Your grace, You'll see me through.
Come fill my heart!

Come fill my heart!
Come fill my heart!
