Love Is Coming Down – The Prophecy Song

Project Introduction:

About a week before Christmas, I woke up with portions of this song in my head along with visual fragments of a story, much like a music video. I tried to quickly get it all down before I forgot too much of it. What I experienced that morning gave me goosebumps, but what I was able to preserve here seems very flat, tasteless, stiff and mechanical in comparison. I hope I got enough down to get the basic idea across and maybe even inspire others who are truly gifted. I’ve never studied music theory, so I may not have labeled the song structure correctly. Hey, I gave it my best shot.

Notes:

Verse: Gentle female voice, soft rhythm, very much like the A Capella sound in the following YouTube video segment (from 1:21 -to- 1:34) of Noteworthy singing “I Will Wait” by Mumford & Sons. The verse in my song has a very similar melody and rhythm to that specific segment of that particular video. I really like their A Capella sound too.

Pre-chorus, Chorus and Bridge: High power, volume and drum beat. (I don’t know the term for when a song revs up to greater musical and emotional intensity.)

Example MP3 file:

This is my very limited attempt to get only the basic melody across. (Please ignore my choice of instruments.) This is my first time using Apple’s Garageband software. I don’t really know what I’m doing. I’m not a musician. This example lacks any chords, variation or harmony as well as a drum set, base guitar, cello, violins — pretty much everything. The key may not be the best, and the tempo may be too high as well.

It helps to listen to that beautiful, small fragment of the A Capella YouTube video above before you listen to this very bad example. Please use your imagination generously.

Lyrics:

[16-measure Introduction]

[Verse (00:10 -to- 00:38 in example MP3)]

  • When communications fall
  • and Internet can’t be found
  • markets will come to a halt
  • The dollar crashes to the ground
  • When panic starts to take hold
  • and you see loot-ing start
  • Then dark men will grow bold
  • Please, dear one, don’t lose heart

[Pre-chorus (00:38 -to- 00:48 in example MP3)]

  • For I tell you the truuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuth
    …………………………(Be still, Hold on, Fear not, Stay strong)
  • Jesus’ coming to your rescue
  • Love is coming down [Refrain]

[4-measure Cool-down]

[Verse (00:55 -to- 01:22 in example MP3)]

  • When atomic missiles fly
  • bringing the horror of war
  • raining destruction from the sky
  • As they pound upon your shore
  • Gone is the peace of the past
  • replaced by chaos and death
  • It all will happen so fast,
  • that you can not catch your breath

[Pre-chorus (01:22 -to- 01:30 in example MP3)]

  • But I tell you the truuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuth
    …………………………(Be still, Hold on, Fear not, Stay strong)
  • Jesus’ coming to your rescue
  • Love is coming down [Refrain]

[Chorus (01:31 -to- 01:48 in example MP3)]

  • He is our mighty hero
  • He is the only true hero
  • The light of the world
  • The hope of the Earth
  • The water of life
  • Taking your sorrow and hurt
  • Love is coming down [Refrain]

[4-measure Cool-down]

[Verse (00:55 -to- 01:22 in example MP3)]

  • A cosmic event shall bring fear
  • causing the heavens to shake
  • This is the sign that He’s near
  • then comes the 10.0 quake
  • then watch the darkness descend
  • so thick it threatens to choke
  • for three whole days it won’t end
  • so pray and wait out the smoke

[Pre-chorus (01:22 -to- 01:30 in example MP3)]

  • You know I tell you the truuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuth
    ………………………………….(Be still, Hold on, Fear not, Stay strong)
  • Jesus’ coming to your rescue
  • Love is coming down [Refrain]

[Chorus (01:31 -to- 01:48 in example MP3)]

  • He is our mighty hero
  • Call upon His mighty name
  • Hold on to your hope
  • Turn away from your sin
  • Let love flow from your heart
  • Don’t give up or give in.
  • Love is coming down [Refrain]

[Bridge (Middle 8)]

  • He’s about to move now
  • in such mighty Power
  • not seen since the day of Cre-a-tion
  • and the true sons of God
  • shall step forth in that hour
  • bringing His light to ev-ery na-tion

[Bridge End]

  • Love is coming down [Refrain]

[4-measure Cool-down]

[Verse (00:55 -to- 01:22 in example MP3)]

  • Then He’ll reveal to your heart
  • the true condition of your soul
  • the cost of a comfy, lukewarm life
  • the crushing weight of sins untold
  • and as you fall to the floor
  • and feel as though you could die
  • just hold tight a little more
  • Do not give up, and here is why.

[Pre-chorus (01:22 -to- 01:30 in example MP3)]

  • ‘Cause I tell you the truuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuth
    ……………………………..(Be still, Hold on, Fear not, Stay strong)
  • Jesus’ coming down to rescue you
  • Love is coming down [Refrain]

[Chorus (01:31 -to- 01:48 in example MP3)]

  • He is our mighty hero
  • He is coming to save your soul
  • The forgiver of sin
  • The source of all love
  • Let His Spirit come in
  • He’s our Gift from above
  • Love is coming down [Refrain]

[Chorus (01:31 -to- 01:48 in example MP3)]

  • In His greatest act of mercy
  • from His sons, miracles shall pour
  • food will appear
  • and water will flow
  • their shadows will heal
  • then to heaven we’ll GOoooooooooo!

    [whisper] ……….He is coming
  • (hold on, be strong, hold on, be strong)
    [whisper] ……Jesus is coming

[Hup sound]
