[VIDEO] Close To You (Ballad of John the Beloved) LIVE at the Garden Tomb, Jerusalem

321

After well over two years of planning, preparing, and rehearsing, nothing could hold us back from singing GOD’s praises at the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem! Not COVID, not even threats of terrorism just a few hundred meters away at the Damascus Gate. We felt supernaturally protected that night knowing we were safely held in the hands of the Almighty (and with ten Israeli soldiers patrolling outside the Garden Tomb Gate!). My hope is that you will be blessed as you hear these songs recorded LIVE that memorable evening. In the midst of the chaos around the world, I pray you see Yeshua, the Risen Savior, Messiah, King of all, and feel the sense of reality that He was, He is and He soon will come again. Amen

LYRICS: THE BALLAD OF JOHN THE BELOVED (CLOSE TO YOU)
You know my name and I know Yours
I’ve been where you walked on the Galilee shores
I’ve seen the tomb, but I saw you rise
And I’ve seen miracles that I can’t describe

I wanna be close to you, Yeshua

Your spirit moves and I know you’re here
Your voice familiar as a song to my ears
Your power heals as it did then
And you still bring the dead to life again

I wanna be close to you, Yeshua

Better is one day in your arms
Than a thousand elsewhere
This is the joy that knows no heights

Just to be called Your beloved is what I long for
‘Cause Your love is better than life
I wanna be close to you Yeshua
