COME UNTO ME (Arrangement of the original )
BACKSTORY: Around the time this was copyrighted, I had been sitting in a Southern Baptist church sanctuary in the state of Virginia. I was waiting along with my mother and maybe younger sister, for an appointment, as we were unofficial members there but truly enjoyed and respected the vibrant, spiritually in tune, emotionally mature, senior pastor. If I recall, it was my mother’s appointment, so I was just there to hang out with both of them (being rather altogther merry), before and after.
As I felt the gentle peace of God’s Holy Spirit come upon me with the beginning of this Active Decompression type leader worship song, I walked over the the grand piano and sat down to pick it out. This this was not what one referred to as a “spirit filled” (affirming meaning: more traditional music, did not prefer long refreshing worship, at least back in that spiritual time) Christian subgroup..and the FIRST VERSION seems to represent that more traditional SOUND… YET in the WORD of coming from the LORD (within)… I sensed it was a refreshing leader reminder, NOT to get OVERLY IMMERSED into any well intentioned, prone to become over busy ( in doing Good God Works). I also take it as a God word for myself.
LATER, I used this particular form of COME UNTO ME (the ARRANGEMENT ) during the DFW media time down here, when Taveau used to be on real local TV and radio (a short time) and then one MANY of her Livestream apostolic prophetic media web TV broadcasts.
FOR THE ORIGINAL SOUND ..one the Holy Spirit downloaded in the Southern Baptist Church: (note this is only the PDF LEAD SHEET as we cannot now locate a recording of the MUCH LESS RHYTHMICAL, yet meaningful, ORIGINAL VERSION. CLICK LINK HERE:
