Love is Here- Tenth Avenue North

I foung this song first on a friend's blog, and ever since then I've loved it! The song 'Love is Here' really speeks to me about how Jesus satisfies, so listen to the song; read the lryics, they're good.

Come to the water, you who thirst and you'll thirst no more.
Come to the father, you who work and you'll work no more.

And all you who labor in vain and to the broken and shamed:

Love is here. Love is now. Love is pouring from His hands, from his brow. Love is near, it satisfies. Streams of mercy flowing from his side. Cuz love is here.

Come to the treasure, you who search and you'll search no more.
Come to the lover you who want and you'll want no more, no.

And to the bruised and fallen, Captives, bound, and broken hearted.
He is the lord He is the lord, Yeah
By his stripes he's paid our ransom From his wounds we drink salvation
He is the lord He is the lord...

Nice song. I like this line: "Come to the Father you who work and you'll work no more." We rest from our dead works in the Person of Christ.

This song is now one of my favorites. The lyrics
and the tune go perfectly together.

Who wrote it?

Drew Middleton, Jason Ingram, Jason Jamison, Mike Donehey.

Don't ask me who they are though, I don't know!

I saw a cd with this song on recently. I think I'll try find it on youtube, if it's the Lord's will.

The CD is awesome. I've had it for a few months now....and I'm a little tired of it because I've listen to it SO much! But still, it's one of my favorites. I think "Love is Here" is one of the best songs on there. It reminds me that God's love is always available for those who just come to Him. His arms are always open wide. O what a God we serve!

That's a nice song, but I'm not so sure I agree with the second line. I know that the freedom we experience in Christ can make things seem easy, but is a Christian life really devoid of work?

Charlie: I believe what the writer means is that we don't need to earn grace, and that we don't have to count on our works to save us. He says "Come to the Father you who work (I think he is speaking to an unbeliever) and you'll work no more." The writer is talking to unbelievers who are trying to earn their way to heaven. Saying to them 'you will stop trying to earn heaven.'

After that line, right before the chorus, he says this, "And all you who labor in vain", this is also refering to an unbeliever. This song is a calling to unbelievers to give up their false hope (earning their way to heaven) and follow Christ!

Good point. I'll take your word for it, but that's not the way it first struck me.
