Come on Down Lord Jesus (The storehouse is full beyond measure)

This country and western style gospel song of petition for Jesus second coming was written by American Pentecostal minister/pastor, song-writer and later university chancellor Jack W Hayford (b 1934) and American Methodist pastor / worship leader Steve Stone.

It was covered by artists including Tennessee Ernie Ford on his album Make a Joyful Noise - and this is the best-known version of the song.

Sheet music was published by John T. Benson Publishing Company (1970). It is now out-of-print, but 2nd-hand copies are sometimes available on Amazon. The song was also included in the book Sing 'N' Praise Hymnal Vol. 2, published by Mandina Music (Steve Stone's company) in 1977, and also now out of print.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
1 The storehouse is full beyond measure
The presses burst forth with new wine
Your blessing is on us
Your word filled with promise
But one prayer fills this heart of mine.

Chorus:
Come on down, Lord Jesus, and take us away
Come on down, Lord Jesus, could this be the day
Even so come quickly Lord Jesus we pray
Come on down, Lord Jesus, come soon.

2 He said let not your heart be troubled
Though hearts all around fail with fear
I'm coming to take you
I'll never forsake you
Look up for my coming is near.

3 Take us home, Lord Jesus, your church upward bring
Maranatha, the word that our lips gladly sing
For we long to assemble before a great king
Come on down, Lord Jesus, come soon.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
1 The storehouse is full beyond measure
The presses burst forth with new wine
Your blessing is on us
Your word filled with promise
But one prayer fills this heart of mine.

Chorus:
Come on down, Lord Jesus, and take us away
Come on down, Lord Jesus, could this be the day
Even so come quickly Lord Jesus we pray
Come on down, Lord Jesus, come soon.

2 He said let not your heart be troubled
Though hearts all around fail with fear
I'm coming to take you
I'll never forsake you
Look up for my coming is near.

3 Take us home, Lord Jesus, your church upward bring
Maranatha, the word that our lips gladly sing
For we long to assemble before a great king
Come on down, Lord Jesus, come soon.
