It has long been a delight of mine to reintroduce well-loved passages of scripture to our times. I invited JJ Heller to co-write with me on this song that had been echoing in my heart. JJ quickly resonated with the lyrics I presented, then added her beautiful melody and voice to help give birth to MY SAVIOR'S LOVE ENDURES, a modern day hymn adapted from Mary's Canticle (otherwise known as The Magnificat, found in Luke 1:45-56).

Although typically visited during the Christmas season, I had the desire for us to sing these words year round. It is a victorious passage that has become for all generations a climatic and tenacious exultation of trust at the point where mercy and judgment kissed. Heaven embraced earth from the inside out in the form of an embryo growing in the belly of a simple girl. Set against the prophetic backdrop of Isaiah, The Light of the World fully dawned from the womb of this little virgin bride at one of the darkest times in history and broke the 400-year silence of God's wrath. Rivers of Living Water flowed from Mary to satisfy the thirst of the whole earth in mercy's ultimate answer to the death when Jesus, in newborn flesh, entered the world. In His humanity he occupied one locale in one time, died in it, rose again triumphant over the grave, and ascended back into heaven’s throne room. Now glorified and through His Holy Spirit He indwells His Bride, those of us who believe, and through Her, He now enters the earth (John 7:37) for all locales and for all times; an ever-flowing River of God into our parched generation and earth for such a time as this.

It is our hope that as the Bride sings our hymn adaptation of The Magnificat, She sings in the confidence that He comes through Her to make all things right and all things new. He alone is the answer our needy, broken world has longed for.
