Lyrical Friday - You Won't Relent

That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for He is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish. Joel 2:12-13
There is not much that needs to be said after reading these verses in Joel. The Lord is calling us into His presence and today's lyrical post is just the song to do so. Jesus Culture reminds us that that Lord will not relent till He has all of us. And so, I encourage you today to meditate on the lyrics and give yourself wholly unto Him. Return to your first love.
Set me as a seal upon your heart,  
As a seal upon your arm; 
For love is as strong as death,       
Jealousy as cruel as the grave;     
Its flames are flames of fire,  
A most vehement flame.        
Many waters cannot quench love,   
Nor can the floods drown it.  
Song of Solomon 8:6-7

You Won't Relent, Jesus Culture
