Come Away with Me

I just got a call I will treasure forever.

It was the pastor of one of the churches that I’ve provided music for over the last few months.

Someone in hospice had just requested to listen to a recording of the hymn “Come Away With Me” that had been a part of an online service.

I love knowing that something I recorded is bringing someone peace in their final days.

What an honor.

For those of you providing virtual services, I know that it is a LOT of work and very out of your comfort zone but I hope this is an encouragement to you that you ARE making a difference.

And if you need help with the music portion of your virtual service, please reach out!

Here are the lyrics in case you want to sing along!

Come away with me to a quiet place, 
apart from the world with its frantic pace, 
to pray, reflect, and seek God’s grace. 
Come away with me. Come away. 

Come and pray with me on a gentle sea, 
on top of a hill in the Galilee, 
in gardens like Gethsemane. 
Come away with me. Come away. 

Come today with thoughts of the countless ways 
that God’s steadfast love blesses all our days, 
and join with me in silent praise. 
Come away with me. Come away. 

Come and say, in words whispered from your soul, 
the feelings and actions you can’t control. 
Your spirit needs to be made whole. 
Come away with me. Come away. 

Come away with me to a quiet place, 
to God’s loving arms waiting to embrace 
all those who come in hope of grace. 
Come away with me. Come away.
