I'd like to introduce you to a new song that I think is an awesome song for Advent: Even So Come, by Chris Tomlin, Jason Ingram, and Jess Cates. This is everything I look for in a song: beautiful, memorable, easy for a congregation to sing, and theologically rich. This would work best with a contemporary worship team, but the hymn-like structure of this song makes it such that it can be used with any group of competent musicians. Check it out!
"Like a bride waiting for her groom
We'll be a Church ready for You
Ev'ry heart longing for our King we sing
Even so come Lord Jesus come"
I am a Catholic liturgical musician seeking to understand the role of the laity in worship and particularly the role of lay musicians in worship.
