The Savior is Waiting
"The Savior is Waiting" has been a timeless hymn that is being sung specially during evangelistic rally altar calls and invitations for people to receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
I believe that music plays a very important role during the invitation time. I recalled seeing students during Christ Emphasis Week convocations at Central Philippine University, come forward upon hearing and meditating on this song, with the speaker's leading. Prior to the invitation they were not listening at all but a very soulful and sincere rendition of "The Savior is Waiting" with the evangelist's bid awakened their senses.
I hope that the present generation young people would rediscover this great song. Choosing popular praise and worship songs might be hip at the moment but the traditional and tested melodies are just waiting to be rendered.
Yes...the Savior is waiting...
