This is a great song of hope that my friend Isaac wrote with his band (The Well Dressed Downs) last Advent season. It really fit with a message that Jessi Marcus gave at Jacob's Well the last Sunday in Advent 2010, so I broke it out. It got a great response from people. One of those people was a friend of mine named Nick Welch. He's pretty much just an all around great guy.

He posted a message to me asking if I'd come over and sing it while he fell asleep that night. I wanted to do that, but realized that it wasn't realistic. I thought, I'll make a nice recording of the song so Nick can have a copy. Then I became obsessed with the song...I kept singing it over and over to myself (even waking up at 3am singing it). So I recorded it the next day. On my way to Jacob's Well I had a thought about the song. I thought, I'll post it up on bandcamp and see if anyone will buy it. Then I remembered that Nick and his wife Katie had just experienced a few weeks of pretty big financial set-backs - one was a really large hospital bill.

I thought, this song is sounding pretty good - it's worth as least much money as a cup of coffee at Starbuck's. I'll see if people will pay $2 (or more) for it, and then I'll give all that money to Nick and Katie. So what do you think? Are you in? Come on, it's at least as sweet as a Chai Latte & will definitely get your heart beating like that $2 cup of caffeine...

Welcome to the end of your sorrows indeed!


It Won’t Be Too Long Now
by Isaac Anderson (The Well Dressed Downs -- 2009)

It won’t be too long now
There’s a weight that’s pressing down
There’s a swelling in the belly of the world

It won’t be too long now
There’s a Son Who’s pressing down
There’s a swelling in the belly of the world

So welcome to the end of your sorrows
Welcome to the end of yourself
Welcome to tomorrow – where hope lives
