Lyrical Friday- How He Loves

I have to say that ever since Lyrical Friday became to be, God has faithfully placed a song in my path throughout the week. This weeks song is How He Loves by John Mark McMillan. This song is so contagious. I spend all day singing the chorus and at times I just stop and stand in awe of His amazing love. How could He, in all His perfection love me. I am so filthy, unfaithful, wavering and rebellious- BUT GOD LOVES ME. It is that love, that pure and undefiled love that draws me near to Him and transforms me. May you be blessed by the words of this song.

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
Psalm 139:14

The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying:

Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.
Jeremiah 31:3

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 
John 3:16

How He Loves

How He Loves, John Mark McMillan

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realise just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves.

We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
And Heaven meets earth like an unforseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way…
