Jesus lead us to the Father

Added 2nd July 2007


If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

Jesus, lead us to the Father,
by your Spirit, help us draw near.

As we come with awe and gladness,
help us draw near.

Alleluia, alleluia,
help us draw near.

I wrote my LST dissertation critiquing "romantic" imagery in worship songs, with the contention that intimacy with God is better expressed in the context of the Trinity. This aims to apply that thinking in a simple worship song. I think it is as we share in Jesus' relationship with the Father, in the power of the Holy Spirit, that we can "draw near" to God. The three sections can be sung over one another as a "cumulative round", which is an easy way to get a congregation singing in harmony. It is also something of a musical picture of the Trinity - three distinct lines, singing as one. It has been used by a number of churches and printed in the Spring Harvest 2005 and Songs for the King books.
