Track 3: Nothing like your LOVE*
Love unchanging. God Your mercy never fades. And I’m surrounded. By Your compassion and Your grace
Your love. Brighter than the sun. More beautiful than words could ever say
This endless light shining over all. It leads me to Your glory everlasting
In Your kindness, For the broken and the lost. You gave Your only Son to bear my shame upon the cross. Your love amazing fills my heart and I sing out
There is none like You. There is nothing like your love amazing fills my heart and I sing out
There is none like You
There is nothing like Your love
Ours is a blistering love affair. The kind you won’t find portrayed in literature. Unlike the tragic and adulterous romance of Tristan and Isolde He remains ever by my side – faithful and true. It is a narrative that began with the words “let there be light” and reached unimaginable heights when with bloodied lips the carpenter said “Father forgive them”.
You don’t know him? The one for whom my heart beats every time I hear his voice filter in through the silence and muddled noises of my thoughts. They said no one is perfect but He is…
To some he is the itinerant preacher hoodwinking the wounded. To others he is a nomadic madcap with illusions of God-like grandeur playing on the naiveté of simple folk. But I call him SHEPHERD. I call him friend. How my soul quivers at his warm touch especially as he leads me through the vale of death’s dismal shadow. Through the ravines and runnels of life, away from the din and drizzle of discord, in spite of my own refusal, resistance and reticence He leads me on. His Compassion is amazing!
Ours is a love that borders on near irrational. Those on the outside looking in wonder at the way he dotes on me. They cannot comprehend the supply of the Spirit. They do not know that the modus operandi of the kingdom is abundance. A lavish love affair that soothes and restores my soul and, at the same time, it is brighter than a million suns, more beautiful than words can ever say. How I wish you would dare to watch us dance. Will you watch closely as he regales me and sweeps me off my feet? He says to me “you are seated with me in dominion”. Will you stare in wonder as he takes the broken pieces of my today and forges a beautiful tomorrow?
He serenades me in the dark nights of my soul; in those moments when the hoot and howl of evil threaten me, and the fiery dart of fierce foes fly overhead. His fingers glide over the tender tendrils of my heart. He is merciful in my weakness, graceful in my shame.
He surrounds me with the sound of a thousand melodies, divine ditties that declare his undying desire for me. Surely you realize now that there is nothing that matters but his love for me. I am entirely at home in Him, seated by side listening as He adorns my head with beauty.
Ours is a love affair that spans the galaxies and grottos. Do you not know that Grace bore my shame on the cross? He smothers me with such relentless devotion (not Coldstone Chocolate Devotion oo) that I am left speechless with wonder. To what would I dare to compare his compassion? What exists on this created plain that can match the terrifying depths of his tender mercies which sprout every morning a new tree? None like Him; nothing like this brand of Love he bestows… an absurdity in this sphere of human affairs – for one so perfect to condescend to love one broken and battered as myself. I am learning to listen to the sweet romance of redemption, learning to drink from this glass of grace.
Would I be wrong to say that neither life nor death compare to HIS LOVE?
