Lyrics

We come to hear your word
Lord, open up our hearts and lives again
So let your voice be heard
We're ready to receive this daily bread

Your word is truth and life to us
So light the way
As we believe your promises
Renew our faith

We come to hear your word
Let revelation shape our hearts anew
We long to know you more
Come, Spirit, lead us deeper into truth

Story

At the beginning of 2017, Joel at RESOUNDworship challenged us to write for the different elements of Sunday services. I decided to work on a simple song to help prepare a congregation to hear Scripture or a sermon.

The essence of the song is a call that the Holy Spirit would "guide us into all truth" as Jesus promised in John 16:13.

The lyrics reference several images from Scripture about how we should receive the Word: as daily bread, as truth, as life, as a light for our path, as transforming power, as promises from God, and as a foundation for faith.

While the focus of the song is on the read and preached Word, the song is also useful for encouraging and focusing the broader range of ways in which God speaks to us.
