Lord Jesus Christ You Have Come To Us (Living Lord) – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Enjoyed fellowship with the saints at Hervey Bay Presbyterian today.
Lord Jesus Christ You Have Come To Us was one of the songs we sang.
The song is composed by Patrick Appleford.
It is number 435 in Mission Praise (and can be found in other books, as well).
Some people might find that the first verse seems vaguely high church, but maybe not, it has wide evangelical usage.

The lyrics:
1.
Lord Jesus Christ you have come to us
You are one with us, Mary’s Son.
Cleansing our souls from all their sin
pouring Your love and goodness in
Jesus our love for you we sing,
living Lord.
2.
Lord Jesus Christ now and every day
Teach us how to pray, Son of God.
You have commanded us to do
this in remembrance Lord of you
Into our lives your power breaks through,
living Lord.
3.
Lord Jesus Christ, you have come to us
Born as one with us, Mary’s Son.
Led out to die on Calvary,
risen from death to set us free,
living Lord Jesus help us see
You are Lord.
4.
Lord Jesus Christ I would come to you
live my life for you, Son of God.
All your commands I know are true,
your many gifts will make me new,
into my life your power breaks through,
living Lord.
