We hosted an acoustic show with Amy Courts and Bethany Dick-Olds in our living room last night; an absolutely amazing evening. I kept my sketch pad handy and pulled it out for a few songs during the night. This one was created to one of Bethany’s lyrical masterpieces, ‘Come the Morning’. Come the Morning was written as a final tribute to her grandfather; it’s beautiful lyrics speak of our souls passing from this life to the next.
Through the experiences in my life and my faith, I have come to describe death for the Christian as being like coming home from vacation; it’s been a fun trip, but it’s good to be home. ‘Come the Morning’ captures that sentiment for me as well. Life has been good, despite a few bumps in the road, but it’s good to get home, come the morning.
