about

I love the story of Elijah in the cave, frustrated and alone... and God finds him, and speaks to him.

This is Immanuel, God with us. He seeks us out and meets us in our most vulnerable, desolate place... he leads us to life. He has not abandoned us.

We tend to want to look for him in the mighty things, but he makes himself so small and near us so that we can touch him and be near him.

lyrics

Will you meet me here?
Will you meet me here?

The wind is shaking the trees on the mountain side
that must be you… it must be you
The wind it rips these mighty oaks apart
that must be you… it must be you

but you’re not there
this is but a shadow
this might is but a hallow desperation to believe

Please let me hear you

The earth… it shakes the ground beneath me
that must be you… it must be you
I see fire… consuming all around me
that must be you… it must be true

but you’re not there
this is but a shadow
this might is but a hallow desperation to believe

Please let me near you

to hear your still small voice

Immanuel has come to us

You let me near you
To hear your still small voice
pull me near you
and hear your still small voice

about

The Longing Selmer, Tennessee

The Longing is music by John and Yvonne Cullimore.

We seek to bring music that will connect with you both in sound and poetry, melding loops and beats with hammered dulcimer, 12-string guitar and layers of vocals and harmonies.

More importantly is that we enjoy our music, and can use them for worship and prayer. We certainly do hope and pray that you can do the same.
