When Heaven Meets Earth

“For me, the recording studio is an outlet for my personal creativity and worship. I remember preparing to sit down and record the piano track for Prayer of Humble Access. The mood in the studio was perfect. The upright piano was tuned and ready. I sat down and began to play along with the instrumentation. As the song went on, I got teary eyed.  I felt connected to the Church all around the world, past and present. I imagined the Church, people from every tribe and language, coming to the Table of the Lord and experiencing the life of Jesus Christ. I was caught up in the place where Heaven and earth meet.  Even now, when I listen to this song, I see glimpses of that reality.” – Dave Frincke

Lyrics

We do not presume to come to this Your table, merciful Lord.
Trusting in our own, our own righteousness
But in your great mercy.
We are not worthy to gather the crumbs from under Your table
But You are the same Lord, Whose nature is always to have mercy
As we eat the flesh of Your Son Jesus Christ and drink His blood
We pray our sinful bodies and our sinful souls
Be cleansed by His blood
And that evermore we may dwell in Him and He in us
