rainy Over the Rhine day

My friends Krissy and Don used part of this song, “Changes Come” by Over the Rhine as part of a worship service a few weeks ago. I love this song because there is so much pain and lament in it, yet, it rests on “Jesus come.” So when the word seems too fucked up… Jesus come… turn the world around… bring the whole thing down…

Changes come
Turn my world around

I have my father’s hand
I have my mother’s tongue
I look for redemption in everyone

I wanna wear your ring
I have a song to sing
It ain’t over babe
In fact it’s just begun

Changes come
Turn my world around
Changes come
Bring the whole thing down

I wanna have our baby
Somedays I think that maybe
This ol’ world’s too fucked up
For any firstborn son

There is all this untouched beauty
The light the dark both running through me
Is there still redemption for anyone

Jesus come
Turn the world around
Lay my burden down
Turn this world around
Bring the whole thing down
Bring it down
