"Come By Here"
This sweet prayer set to music has special
meaning for me. It was often a part of my childhood worship. I've heard similar sentiments from others about the familiar
song. Its uncomplicated lyrics reflect a profound statement of hope: talk to God and he will surely listen.
This musical conversation implores God
to remember us, although he needs no reminders. He attends to every situation.
Therein lies the hope.
you find comfort in my rendition of "Come By Here."
"Kumbaya" (also spelled Kum Ba Yah) is a song claimed to have been composed by Reverend
Marvin V. Frey in the 1930s in Portland,
Oregon. The song enjoyed newfound popularity during the folk
revival of the 1960s, largely due to Joan
Baez's 1962 recording of the song, and became associated with the Civil
Rights Movement of that decade. [Wikipedia]
