Semi-abstract man crouching in the street


Come, O Spirit of God

Come, O Spirit of God
Cause blind eyes to see.
In this day, awaken our land.
Come, O Spirit of power
Breathe life through Your church,
Come O Lord, bring heaven to earth,
Bring heaven to earth.

In every house where there is sorrow
Reaching out to comfort those who mourn.
Declaring freedom for the captives
We'll proclaim the favour of the Lord.

In every town across this nation
Reaching out to heal the broken hearts.
Releasing prisoners from the darkness
We'll proclaim the justice of our God.

In city streets weighed down by heartache
Reaching out with grace where there is shame.
Once shattered lives restored to wholeness
We'll display the splendour of the King.

scripture reading in this track

The Spirit of the LORD is on me; because he has anointed me to preach good news to the humble. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and an opening of the eyes to those who are bound; ... to comfort all who mourn; ... to give to them a garland for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness.

Isaiah 61:1-3a (NHEB) read by Samuel Oyediji

Dwell album cover from Prayerscapes

In this season of giving, it is hard sometimes to cut through the commercial trappings, rise above the “perfect Christmas” expectations and truly connect with loved ones to give a gift that is really yearned for. We (like most creatives) sometimes find it hard to “push” our own work, to believe that our music can Read More
