This is a song I was asked to write and record for a DVD being made by Blythswood Care.

The DVD was shown in churches around Scotland (and beyond) as part of their Shoebox Appeal ‘09 in which people are asked to fill an empty shoebox with items such as toiletries, clothes, stationery and sweets for someone in need in Eastern Europe, India or Pakistan.

In 2008 132,000 shoeboxes were sent out, bringing the total since the appeal began in 1993 to 1,122,000.

Love come down
Come take our hearts and change each one
So we can have
Your healing hands in this world

Love come down
Fill us with the grace that abounds
Freeing us to
Give up our lives

Love come down
Tear down the walls all around
That keep us from seeing
The eyes of the poor in this world

Love come down
Come silence every sound
That drowns out the sorrow
That rings in your ears

Love come down
Where there is night, bring your sun
Shining into
The darkest corners

Love come down
Show us your King's rule has come
Help us to see where you already are
Help us to treasure the things of your heart
Help us to follow you into the dark

Don't take long
(Come on love)
Don't take long
