I met a new friend a few weeks ago on YouTube, who posted the lyrics to this song on one of my videos. When he did, I was intrigued: it was beautiful poetry, it used Jesus' "real" name, there was no author attributed, and I couldn't find it on the web.

Yeshua Cry
Yeshua...
You are the Son of God with all power and might.
The Word made flesh to manifest God's love and light.
Drawing near the far...
Bright Morning Star...
Yeshua
Because of You we'll make it through the night.
Your healing hands have restored man through many plight.
I'm no exception Lord...
We need you more and more...
Yeshua
You are the way, the truth and the life
You are the Man God's perfect lamb you paid the price.
On Calvary...
Where you died for me...
Yeshua... Jesus
Drawing near the far...
Bright Morning Star...
I'm no exception Lord...
We need You more and more...
On Calvary...
You died for Us...
Yeshua... Jesus

So I asked the fellow who posted, and he said he wrote it! I knew it had to be made into a song, but I wasn't sure how he would take that suggestion. However, I needn't worry. He was also curious about how it might sound.

This new friend's name is Samuel Brewer. In fact, he recently decided to help me in my project at Patreon, God bless him!!

I've done him a wee bit of a disservice in that the lyrics are not exactly the same as the original, which is unfortunate. The words were very nice just as they were. However, I found it hard to put them all into the melody, so hopefully this will suffice.
