The Robe by Wes King

Captain’s Log, Stardate 01.07.2006

I’ve been developing the spiritual theme for this current project for a while, and I think I’ve finally nailed it down. This song has inspired me in my own walk, but then it occurred to me that it communicates the emotional theme for my WIP very well, too.

The Robe by Wes King

Anyone whose heart is cold and lonely
Anyone who can't believe
Anyone whose hands are worn and empty
Come as you are

Anyone whose feet are tired of walking
And even lost their will to run
There is a place of rest for your aching soul
Come as you are

For the robe is of God
That will clothe your nakedness
And the robe is His grace
It's all you need
Come as you are

Anyone who feels that they're unworthy
Anyone whose just afraid
Come sinner, come and receive His mercy
Come as you are

For the robe is of God
That will clothe your nakedness
And the robe is His grace
It's all you need
Come as you are

  1. I love this song. I can totally see how it would inspire ANYONE.

    I need to find my Wes King cd and play it. It's been a while, and I tend to forget how verses go if I don't play a song repeatedly.

  3. It would be a much better song if its English grammar weren't so bad. You have to really think hard to make sense of "And the Robe is of God that will clothe your nakedness." Is he intending to say, "And the robe that will clothe your nakedness is of God", or is he saying "And the robe is from the God that will clothe your nakedness." It is unclear what the clause "that will clothe your nakedness" is modifying. Poor use of English grammar ruins a potentially stellar song. Just another example of a premature release of a song before all the kinks have been worked out. And an example of why the English language is so confusing, unlike Greek.
