Lyrics

YOU CAME BY YESTERDAY

So you came by yesterday
With your piercing eyes and your gentle face
You taught us music from the king
On our instruments as we learnt to sing

As it is, as it is in heaven
Release your rains
Come wash us all
As it is, as it is in heaven
Release your reign
Let the streams run full

And so you came by yesterday
On the other cliff
A mile away
Beneath there was a raging sea
But you built the bridge
With your carpentry

As it is, as it is in heaven
Release your reign
Let the streams run full

And so you came by yesterday
With your gifts of beauty
Gifts of joy
You washed our eyes out in the rain
Then we laid the branches out for you

Hallelu, hallelujah
Behind these clouds
The sky runs blue

Hallelu, hallelujah
Behold the one
Making all things new

So you came by yesterday
With your bleeding hands and your bleeding heart
Was that you nailed there to the tree
On the distant hill as the sky grew dark?

As it is, as it is in heaven
Release your reign
Come wash us all
As it is, as it is in heaven
Release your rains
Let the streams run full

It’s been so long since yesterday
How the hours pass like centuries
I’ve seen the shadow of the Son
Stretching out from here
To kingdom come
