Lyrical Friday - Love Song

Hi dear friends. Happy Friday. Our song for this week comes from one of my favorite Christian bands: Third Day. Today's song is a very special one to me. I don't know about you but when I ponder and truly meditate on God's love for me, I can't grasp it. His love is infinite, He is limitless and divine... My love is conditional, I am limited and rubbish. But God does not see junk when He sees us. In Christ, God sees us as we will be, not as we are! He has done everything to be with me. He has done everything to be with you.

My prayer is that these lyrics will echo to you His love for days, years and eternity to come. "May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is." Ephesians 3:18

“You asked for a loving God: you have one. The great spirit you so lightly invoked, the ‘lord of terrible aspect,’ is present: not a senile benevolence that drowsily wishes you to be happy in your own way, not the cold philanthropy of a conscientious magistrate, nor the care of a host who feels responsible for the comfort of his guest...s, but the consuming fire Himself, the Love that made the worlds, persistent as the artist’s love for his work and despotic as a man’s love for a dog, provident and venerable as a father’s love for a child, jealous, inexorable, exacting as love between sexes.” - C. S. Lewis

Love Song, Thrid Day

I've heard it said that a man would climb a mountain
Just to be with the one he loves.
How many times has he broken that promise
It has never been done.
I've never climbed the highest mountain,
But I walked the hill of Calvary.

Just to be with you, I will do anything
There's no price I would not pay no
Just to be with you, I would give everything
I would give my life away.

I've heard it said that a man would swim the ocean
Just to be with the one he loves
All of those dreams are an empty motion.
It can never be done.
I've never swam the deepest ocean,
But I walked upon the raging sea.

I know that you don't understand
the fullness of My love.
How I died upon the cross for your sins.
And I know that you don't realize
how much that I give you
But I promise, I would do it all again.
