Yesterday we worshipped our way through Psalm 51 in the first part of our assembly--confession, petition, thanksgiving, and praise. Then during communion we sang "Just As I Am." For some reason, at both services, I had to fight back a tear. We don't sing "Just As I Am" much anymore. It hasn't completely disappeared, thankfully, but it's less common. It is, of course, THE invitation song. The one with 50 verses sung until that last white-knuckled sinner turns loose of the pew and comes forward. Yesterday it really was an invitation to me. An invitation to ingest the words of Psalm 51 while receiving again the body and blood of Jesus. An an invitation to remember. In my mind I traveled back to the age of 18, a freshman at Harding listening to the spell-binding words of one of my heroes (then and now), Jimmy Allen. And I also time-traveled back to the age of 21, when I began holding Gospel Meetings (not revivals--that was the Baptists!) in places like Seneca, Mount Vernon, Neosho, and Hottel Springs, Missouri. Just as I am! Thy love unknown has broken every barrier down; Now to be thine, yea, think alone, O Lamb of God, I come! I come! What invitation songs (or any other spiritual songs) still take you back to sweet moments of spiritual revival?
