Jesus Come

Written by Elton Smith and Larry Holder

My wife's cousin is a resident assistant at Virginia Tech, in the same dorm as the initial shootings. Devastation of lives, man's inhumanity to fellow man, both at home and abroad, lead us all to long for the day when the Lord returns to claim His throne, and usher in true Peace on earth. His 1,000 year reign in Jerusalem will be followed by the re-creation of the heavens and earth, which will last for all eternity. Let's be sure to continue to tell the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ until that day when He makes good on His promise in Revelation 22:20: "The one who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!"

This song is also a landmark... Elton and I are now celebrating 10 years of songwriting together (starting back in September 1997). This song was written in our classic collaboration style as the first songs were: Elton wrote the wonderful melody and MIDI accompaniment, and I added the lyrics. May the Lord continue to provide inspiration for even more songs until He returns! - Larry, May 2007


(Verse 1)
All the world's in travail
From the hills to the sea
Sin and death have their way
So it seems.

How we long for the day
When the Word shall prevail
When the Lord--- comes again!

Jesus, come!
End the night
Fill the world With Your light
Be enthroned,
Come and reign with no end.

Let the nations rejoice
(Let the nations rejoice)
To Your praise lift a voice
(To Your praise lift a voice)
Lord we long for the day
You come again!

(Verse 2)
All the world cries for peace
Yet the wars linger on
There's no hope for a change
So it seems.

Yet the promise remains
For a new age to dawn
When the Lord--- comes again!

(Repeat Chorus)
Jesus, come!
End the night
Fill the world With Your light
Be enthroned,
Come and reign with no end.

Let the nations rejoice
(Let the nations rejoice)
To Your praise lift a voice
(To Your praise lift a voice)
Lord we long for the day
You come again!

Bring Your love
Bring Your peace
Bring Your joy
Come again!
