    One of the wonderful things about the Christian faith is that Jesus doesn’t require us to “have it all together” before we come to him. Before we even knew we needed him, he was calling us. This short, meditative song, reminds those of us who are tired and weighed down are especially welcome. Jesus is calling us to himself. Both versions include four-part voice/accompaniment.

    Amid all the “sleeping baby Jesus” songs of the season, we often forget that Jesus had a bumpy start to his life on earth: born away from home, his family was soon on the run again, this time to a foreign country. Though the “slaughter of the innocents” and the “flight into Egypt” rarely make it into our Christmas imagination, I’ve been thinking that they may serve an important role for our congregations. Let’s face it: lots of us approach Christmas with dread and depression. We’re far from home, missing loved ones, mourning babies that were never born, or are just so sickened by the reality of the world around us that we have a hard time putting our hearts into a Norman Rockwell Christmas.

    With this in mind, I penned “Comfort, Come Again.” It’s a prayer that draws on the themes of Matthew 2 and recasts them in a way that they could be prayed and sung for either the characters of the biblical narrative or those of us today who are going through similar griefs and trials.

    You can almost imagine Jesus coming closer as this song progresses: The verses begin with prophecies of the Messiah with which the crowd would have been familiar (Ps 24, Is 40) and the people answer with the Palm Sunday refrain of “Hosanna in the highest!” It uses the familiar Jewish folk tune (“The King of Glory Comes”), which your congregation likely already knows.

    There are only a handful of great Palm Sunday hymns, especially ones that can be sung during a palm processional. “Hosanna in the Highest!” is a stately hymn with an easily-learned chorus and narrative verses that move dramatically toward Jerusalem. The text can also be sung to the Jewish folk tune associated with “The King of Glory Comes.”

    The Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13) becomes an ethereal musical groove in this song. Download the sheet music or listen to the track as it appears on the album Half the Man.

    This fourth song of the “Seven Last Words” project has Jesus speaking perhaps the most desolate words of the Bible: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46, Mark 15:34) These words uttered from the cross are actually a direct quote from Psalm 22, where we read of a Psalmist surrounded by enemies but ultimately saved from the grasp of death.

    If Jesus could trust God even on the cross, certainly we can cry out for deliverance even in the middle of our pain, doubt, and despair.

    “The Sermon on the Mount” contains some of Jesus’ most beloved words, but there are surprisingly few songs that take up these themes. As some settings of “The Beatitudes” have fallen into disuse it seemed the time was ripe for a new one. The verses are nearly verbatim scripture and the chorus is exceedingly easy to learn.

    PowerPoint slides for congregational singing are available from Digital Songs & Hymns.
