Behold, Behold by Caroline Cobb

Behold, Behold is the final track on her album A Home & A Hunger.
It speaks of experiencing the culmination and fulfillment of God’s redemption.

The lyrics:
Verse 1:
I see a city coming down
Like a bride in whitest gown,
Purely dressed
I see the pilgrims coming home
All creation finds shalom;
The promised rest
Pre-Chorus:
The Lamb of God will be her light
The sun will have no need to shine
Chorus 1:
Behold, behold
God makes His home with us!
He’ll take his throne, forever glorious!
The curse will be undone!
O come lord, Jesus come
Verse 2:
The Lord will banish every sin
All that’s broken He will mend;
And make new
And we will see Him face to face
As He wipes our tears away;
Death is through
Pre-Chorus 2:
And all the ransomed and redeemed
From every tongue and tribe will sing
Chorus 1
Bridge:
At last the darkness
Will surrender to the light
But we unveiled in glory will forever shine
At last the powers of hell
Will drown in lakes of fire
But we will freely drink
The crystal streams of life
Come thirsty taste and see
Come hungry to the feast
Come weary find your peace
The Bride and Spirit sing
Come! Come!
Chorus 2:
Behold, behold God makes His home with us
He’ll take his throne, forever glorious!
Behold, behold God makes His home with us
He’ll take his throne, forever glorious!
The curse will be undone
Oh come, Lord Jesus, come

The Two Lost Sons by Caroline Cobb

Caroline Cobb’s A Home & A Hunger has been released today.
It’s a wonderful album of songs that follow the biblical themes of God’s redemptive purpose.

Here’s a song based on Luke 15, seasoned with observations by Tim Keller: The Two Lost Sons.
Have a listen:

The lyrics:
Verse 1:
I have been the younger son
Chase my pleasure, chase my fun
Build castles in the sand
My own Promise Land
When my kingdoms crumble down
The famine comes, I bottom out
Well I can hear your voice
Call for your little boy
Pre-Chorus 1:
But you were more of a means than a Father
You were drownin’ my dreams underwater
Chorus:
My child, my child I’ll run out to meet you
Come into my house What’s lost can be found
My child, my child come into the party
All I have is yours Don’t stand outside my door
All I have is yours
Verse 2:
I have been the elder son
Slavin’ til the work is done
Just tryin’ to earn my keep
Nothing comes for free
Bitterness was in my blood
From all this tryin’ to be enough
But you love that wayward son

Oh but look at what I’ve done
Pre-Chorus 2:
You were more of a means than a Father
I acted like an employee,
Not a son, not a daughter
Chorus
Bridge:
Don’t let your pride get in the way
You don’t need to earn my love
Don’t let your guilt get in the way
You don’t need to earn my love
All of those rules that you keep or you break
You don’t need to earn my love
There is a Son that has already paid
You don’t need to earn it
You don’t need to deserve it
Come home, come home!
Chorus
Outro:
Come into my joy!
All I have is yours
