Love Came Down

Posted on

Whispers and Shouts #19.

…a short burst of inspiration of what God is speaking to me, a prayer, a quote, a song, or whatever else.


This song has some special meaning to me, and it’s just powerful in content and Spirit. We do it in our services, but I also really like this stripped down version of the song. I hope you hear the cry of it.

In the hard times of believing and persevering to the joyful times when everything is happening “suddenly,” we can be drawn back to the reality that our lives rest on His sacrifice and that we are His. How could we not offer ourselves again in worship?

Love came down and rescued me
Love came down and set me free
I am Yours, I’m forever Yours
Mountain high or valley low
I sing out, remind my soul
That I am Yours, I’m forever Yours

What are your thoughts? What worship song means a lot to you?

    I have several that have impacted me lately. 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman has been one of them. Facedown by him also. I have really enjoyed listening to White Flag, the newest Passion CD. I really like Yahweh by Chris Tomlin.

    I love this song as well- we sing it at Next Level. Something about the bridge really captures me: “I am yours, I am yours, all my days, Jesus, I am yours.” So thankful that His love has pursued me and claimed me as His own.

      I know, I love that bridge. So simple and so expressive at the same time. Powerful! Thanks Stephen.

    I really like this song a lot too. We have been doing “The Greatness of Our God” which was originally written by Natalie Grant quite a bit lately and I really like that song. There are a couple by someone by the name of Jason Scott that I like, “Amen” “To the King” and “Cries of Your Kingdom.” 🙂

      I don’t remember that particular Natalie Grant song. Have to check it out. And yeah, that Jason Scott guy is pretty good. He just won’t shut up about his new album and fundraising campaign lately. 🙂

    That’s a great cry of the heart. My old favorite is Third Day, You Are Everywhere.

      I couldn’t remember that song offhand, but I looked it up and listened--yeah, great song! Thank you, Floyd.

    Awesome Jason…thanks so much!

    During some “dark nights of the soul” I would find myself singing an unusal
    worship song…I’m sure your know it.

    Jesus loves me! This I know,
    For the Bible tells me so.
    Little ones to Him belong;
    They are weak, but He is strong.

    Many times that song has lifted me out dark places. It’s the first song
    I learn as a young Christian (many years ago) and it has remained with me
    ever since.

      I am not kidding--that is a powerful worship song! I have found myself many times in a place of deep worship and begin to sing that song and it just breaks me (in a good way). Thank you, Jay.

    I am not familiar with that song but I really liked it. Some of my favourite songs right now are “The Motions” by Matthew West and “Jesus Friend of Sinners” by Casting Crowns.

    My mood for music changes it depends on what I’m doing. When its everyday I love listening To All of Hillsong Especially there song beautiful exchange. I love Klaus especially the Glory CD. Kari Jobe and Gateway is my all time favorite especially there rendition of The Revelation Song.

    If I want to listen to some old school worship like the songs we sang 10-20 years ago I love listening to Caribbean Style for those song guess its because of my roots.

    And when I want to pump up my blood especially for when I do a photo shoot I listen to Hip Hop especiall Lecrae and Trip Lee

      I definitely understand being eclectic! Can’t settle on just one style. There’s a lot of great music out there! Thanks Andrew.

    How He Loves is my song. I heard it for the first time during one of my trips to Czech. A friend sent me the link. I was hesitant to listen to it because, from his description, I knew it would leave me a blubbering mess, which it did. I can listen to that song over and over again and it never gets old.

      Man, I love that song. I was listening to Pandora a week or so ago while I was jogging on a trail in the woods and that came on. I was singing loudly and just being overwhelmed until, that is, I ran into another person on the trail. 🙂 Point is, I love that song. It’s powerful! Thanks Jason.
