He Is Coming! New Song For The Hastening

I am thrilled to share the newest song by Melanie and Roger Hoffman with the debut of its music video! The Song “He is Coming!is from the Hoffman’s upcoming album “He Is Coming: New Songs for A New Time” which will release in October 2014!  [pre-order here] I was honored to collaborate with the Hoffman’s to create the video for this launch. “He Is Coming” is a truly remarkable and beautiful piece of music. Completely unplanned, the inspired song was written and timed to release in tandem with Elder David A. Bednar’s groundbreaking talk at BYU Education Week [which I blogged about here]. Elder Bednar spoke about our “distinctive dispensation” we are now living in, and he stated;

“A technology known as social media is evolving in our day and playing an increasingly important role in hastening the work of salvation. . .

I exhort you to sweep the earth with messages filled with righteousness and truth—messages that are authentic, edifying, and praiseworthy—and literally to sweep the earth as with a flood.”

—Elder David A. Bednar, To Sweep The Earth As With A Flood

This new song arrived in my email box on Tuesday August 19, 2014 at the exact same moment I was listening to Elder Bednar deliver his LIVE streaming speech. When I read the lyrics and listened to the melody I got chills! The song begins with “the flood” that Elder Bednar just proclaimed.

Like the rushing of breakers that race to the call of the shore
The waves of the Spirit are flooding the earth with His power.
The flood is beginning, crescendoing, filling the earth.
His hand is upon us to raise us in power and faith. . .

– Melanie Hoffman

Here was the perfect musical response to that day’s prophetic message! What a testament it is to me how the Lord will work through each of us to send His messages across the earth. This new song now stands as another witness that it is time to use our voices and talents as Elder Bednar urged, to “positively impact large numbers of individuals and families“, sharing those messages of “righteousness and truth” using social media, to flood the earth with the Good News!

We’ve been entrusted to do a marvelous work, in a very limited amount of time. The pace is hastening, because He is Coming! – MoSop

HE IS COMING!

New Songs for A New Time

Lyrics by Melanie Hoffman, ©2014 by C.T.L. Music (ASCAP)

Like the rushing of breakers that race to the call of the shore
The waves of the Spirit are flooding the earth with His power.
The flood is beginning, crescendoing, filling the earth.
His hand is upon us to raise us in power and faith.

Chorus
Lift your eyes to Him
He will come again
Lift your voice and sing
He is coming again!

With a force that is stronger than any have known before
The powers of heaven and earth are uniting once more.
The light of the Son is rising, never to dim.
With the turning of times He is turning our hearts to Him.

Chorus
Lift your eyes to Him
He will come again
Lift your voice and sing
He is coming again!

Generations of heaven and earth join voices and sing,
Drawing together in love, for Jesus our King.
In the fullness of times, with gifts of His bounteous grace
His children are gathering home to a glorious place.

Chorus
Lift your eyes to Him
He will come again
Lift your voice and sing
He is coming again!
