Morning Song – Please Don’t Leave Me

September 25, 2016

There are a lot of great “conversion” songs—songs that place you just before, or just after, or in the midst of a conversion moment. And that’s a good thing.

But it’s also a one-time thing, and—with the notable exception of death-bed conversion—the simple fact is most Christians spend more of their lives in need of revival.

That’s where a “revival” song like “Please Don’t Leave Me” comes in.

Lord, you brought me from a mighty long way;

Please don’t leave me now.

And the way the Chicago Mass Choir does it reminds the listener of that ancient truth deeply embedded in the Black Church: there is no “I” without a “we”.
