Calling Out To You

I wrote this song around Revelation 3:20: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” I wanted to capture the idea of Jesus calling. The idea that he was Calling out to us from outside the door, waiting for us to answer.

We will be using it at our church as the invitation after our Easter Message, and that is how the song would be used the best.

    Great job David. Your song is especially appropriate for Easter and in harmony with Revelation 3:20, because it was primarily spoken to “the Church”, not the unregenerate world where it is most often directed. I’m anxious to hear how it went on Easter Sunday. “He’s still seeking, He’s still knocking, He’s still calling, won’t you answer?” I like it! Thanks David.

  • This is such an appropriate song! So many people search and just don’t know how to find Jesus. Growing up I had so many questions and after hearing this verse in 5th grade, I wanted to find this “door” they were talking about! It wasn’t until I was in my 30’s that a friend gave me my first bible, with MY name inscribed on it – I opened it to Revelation 3:20 and read the verse again. I fell to my knees when I finally had been shown the “door”. I looked up and said, “hello Jesus, thank you for waiting for me!”.

    Thank you for sharing your gift of music with us all!
