  • Come and Dwell - by The Gathering Place Worship

    This is a song that I and our writing team wrote a few years ago. We recently got some studio time and finally got a chance to record a demo with the band. Here's the Dropbox link below:


    Any feedback/critiques would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Here are the lyrics by the way:

    Verse 1:
    Come and lay down your burdens...the Father is drawing you in
    Surrender your striving...embrace His love instead....He's saying

    Come and dwell in my rest (Rest in this vast revelation)
    Receive my righteousness (I have been waiting for you)
    Come and dwell in my rest (My child, you've always been welcome)
    Receive my righteousness (I have been waiting for you)

    Verse 2:
    Drink from the living fountain...accept this beautiful gift
    Stay and behold Him...sit at His feet, be still.....He's saying

    Enter into His river...let His love flood Your soul....
    His goodness make You whole
    Come and dwell forever....make His rest your home
    Sit beside His throne
    Come and dwell....come and dwell

      Beautiful song, Kevin! Very nicely done.

      I have a curious question, if you don't mind. What is the intent of the song? By that, I'm wondering if the song was written/recorded with the purpose of congregational singing. If so, it would seem odd for a group of people to sing this. It would seem to better fit as a "soaking" song, where others would simply listen to the words, let the lyrics soak in, and allow the Holy Spirit to minister to them. Have you presented this song to the congregation? If so, what response did you receive?

      As long as people are being ministered to by the song, it's one of the biggest blessings we receive as songwriters. Blessings to you!!!

        Hi Melanie,
        Thank you for the response! The song was written mainly as an invitation song. It's not congregational so to speak, but we have used it several times in our response times on Sunday morning. It has really resonated with our local body, and has become a favorite over the past couple of years. I definitely agree with you that it is a "soaking" song. Anytime that we have sang it on our services, it has served this function. It has also, curiously enough, served as an appropriate song at a memorial service. Blessings!
