about

This song is based off of Hosea 2 from the Bible. This is one of my favorite passages as well. I wrote this song when I was in a "wilderness" period with the Lord. He used that time to completely draw me away from everything else so that I could be with Him and Him alone and so the He could show me that He was my ultimate Lover. During that time, He drew me to this passage in the Bible, where He talks about drawing us out into the wilderness so that He can tenderly woo us and show us that there is nothing else like His love for us. This passage became really personal to me with where I was at with Him, so this song is an expression of that.

All profits from this EP will be going to Agape International, an orphanage I personally visited in Hyderabad, India.

lyrics

Come my Beloved
My desire, won't you come?
Follow me into the wilderness
Where we are the only ones
Oh, how I miss you
Oh, how I miss you

I've called you my Daughter
And I've called you my Son
I long to restore your identity
And make you whole within my love
Oh, how I miss you
Oh, how I miss you

I long to draw you out where
Your heart may be made aware
Of my love for you
Oh, Oh
I have prepared a place where
We may dwell together
And we may know each other
Oh, Oh
